With seating for 5, the 2016 Chevrolet Volt breaks away from the 4-seat trend set by the first-generation Volt.

Today, at the 2015 NAIAS, we took the time to go back to the 2016 Volt with one objective in mind: capture the Volt's rear-seating area in detail.

Unfortunately, our time in the Volt was cut short as a General Motors staffer noticed us zooming in on the Volt's fifth seat and testing it out, and rushed over to politely tell us that our time was up (or to get out now, we can't quite recall the statement that was made, but it was rather aggressive).

Luckily, we still managed to snap a few quick shots of the back seats of the Volt, but we didn't quite have time to slide into that 5th seat.

*UPDATE: Turns out the "get out right now" (yes, that's the actual statement made in a rude manner) guy was a General Motors photographer who needed to set up immediately for a photo shoot of a GM exec in front of the Volt.   InsideEVs was granted permission to enter and photograph the Volt by the product manager.  And after 20 minutes of waiting in line, it was our turn to photograph the Volt.  Within seconds, the "get out right now" guy started barking orders to us.  Life at an auto show.
