General Motors is asking people to vote for their favorite among these small car concepts. All three were designed at GM's Design Studio in Inchon, South Korea, one of 11 GM Global Design Studios. The Inchon studio specializes in small car development. People can place their vote at the Website vote4chevrolet.com. GM is not promising to build whichever version wins the tally, however.
