While I was in LA, I took some footage at a "blogger's dinner" with a bunch of GM mucky-mucks. The star of www.filmusa.org the evening was GM's vice chair, Bob Lutz, who answered a bunch of questions after we finished our rather posh dinner (and while we did our best to ignore the huge slab of cheesecake in front of us).
Yes, I am aware that it looks very much like I'm being bribed with cheesecake and wine, and I'll tell you, that's kinda what it felt like, too. Which is why I'm sharing with you the words exactly as they came out of Bob's mouth (with some subtitles and editing.)
In this first of three videos, Lutz talks about the problems and possibilities (from GM's perspective) for diesel cars in America. In the next two videos (which will be online later today) he'll be talking about the Chevy Volt "range extended electric vehicle" and GM's commitment to big-ass hybrids.
GM underwrote my trip to LA...their only requirement was that I let people know that they did so whenever I wrote about it...which is what I am doing now.
