General Motors Company [NYSE:GM] design chief Ed Welburn has revealed that future Chevrolet models will feature styling inspired by the Corvette. The link between the respective designs of the new cars and the brand’s halo vehicle will be subtle, with the new Chevys likely to borrow Corvette elements such as the taut hood and square-shaped tail-lights.

“In the past we never really took advantage of iconic vehicles like Camaro and Corvette the way we are today,” Welburn told Automotive News (subscription required). “As Malibu and Cruze and Volt come to market, you'll be able to see a subtle link between some of the form vocabulary for all of them and Corvette."

The first of the new Chevys alluded to by Welburn that we’ll be seeing is the new Volt, which makes its debut next month at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. The teaser above and previous spy shots give us a taste of what to expect.

We’ve also been given a taste of the new Cruze thanks to the early arrival of the Chinese-spec car, and the first spy shots of a prototype for the new Malibu surfaced only last month, though heavy camouflage gear hid most of the design.
