What about the EV1?
written by Steven Surowiec, September 19, 2008
While I think the Volt is a good step in the right direction, why aren't people asking about the EV1 that GM created and then destroyed? They were released in the late 90's and some of the Gen 2 ones got up to 100 miles per charge. Yet no body seems to very good site levitra pfizer question those any more, which is very concerning since if they were not scrapped it's entirely possible electric cars would be the standard right now.

32,000?
written by Jim, September 19, 2008
He said 32,000 scientists don't believe CO2 is a factor for global warming? Are they oil company scientists?

I haven't seen it mentioned yet here, other than on the Prius, but it looks like the volt will have a solar roof option?

Non-Reality based management...

32,000 "scientists"?

Well, if you include some people who have a masters degree in library science among your climate experts....

It's scary to think that the CEO of a very major company could be so ill-informed.

Are the engineer/scientist folks who work for GM unable to get basic information funneled to the top?

It makes one wonder what other false information is being plugged into GM's decision process.

Disturbing
written by David, September 19, 2008
I also found Lutz to be scary and bit of a stuffy auto exec...no a surprise considering GM's performance. I am sure there are a lot of Lutz's there.

which is preferable?
written by AndyM, September 19, 2008
Hey, which is preferable?

1) a guy who does NOT believe that global warming is caused by human activity by way of buy tramadol cheap online increased levels of greenhouse gases, but nonetheless heads a company that will make a car that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions. (Bob Lutz)

2) a guy who DOES believe that global warming is caused by human activity by way of increased levels of greenhouse gases, but does nothing except rant about it, while maintaining an extravagant lifestyle with a gigantic carbon footprint. (Al Gore)

"I can have my planet and eat it too." Missed that episode of Colbert but that clip was one of the best interviews I've seen yet. Brilliant!

I actually thought Lutz was a pretty good sport and www.roli-guggers.de a perfect foil for Colbert. He took it pretty well. And let's face it, the Volt sounds like a winner...most daily commuters don't drive over 40 miles, so they're using zero to little gasoline. And the car isn't bad looking, either!

But will it get me laid? I love it!

Crunchy women!?
written by Ugh, September 19, 2008
I was kind of annoyed that driving a fuel efficient vehicle means you will only attract crunchy, unattractive women who don't shave their legs. That's really great coming from the VP. What, only ugly women will buy the vehicle? F that...

tiny little 4 cylinder engine
written by Jordan, FCD, September 19, 2008
I love how Lutz says its a "1.4L...tiny little 4 cylinder engine" that will be the "emergency generator". The hand gestures are funny too. My Toyota Corolla runs on a 1.6L 4 cylinder engine. My car's engine is only 200cc bigger than the "emergency generator".

it's the Cobert Report!
written by dawn, September 19, 2008
Thanks for posting that Hank! Hilarious!

And for the people getting offended about the "crunchy women" comment... It's the Cobert Report! If you've never seen the show before, perhaps you don't know... but it's not meant to be taken seriously. It's satire!

Guys like Lutz killed the http://www.unifem.it/buy-cialis-from-china EV-1, and he's getting off to buy ing viagra in canada a great start on killing the Volt. I don't know why GM loves to cut off their nose to spite our face.

I shave my legs!
written by Ugh, September 20, 2008
If Colbert had been the one to insinuate that unattractive women would be the only ones attracted, that's no big deal. Colbert says that stuff all the time and it's hilarious because he doesn't mean it. Lutz is http://televideocom.com/cialis-best-buy the idiot who said it and frankly, it didn't sound like it was a joke to him.

Lutz is a putz.

wtc, stand up for your own product!
written by Nic, September 20, 2008
Hilarious, but it's rather disturbing that the GM vice-chairman can't even pretend to believe in the marketing of the Volt. Electric cars don't have to be for the "hippie treehugger" stereotype, and can in fact perform quite well, as demonstrated by the Tesla's 0-60 in under 4 seconds. Chevy needs to propecia without a prescription get their act together and market this thing as a practical, cool, unique car. I wish Lutz would at least try to defend it, but it's obvious he really agrees with the "conservative" Colbert, that it's just another wimpy electric car and a waste of time.

You know, Andy, your statement that Gore does nothing but rant about global warming says a lot about you.

Says nothing good, I might add...

Why the price of viagra big 3 are in such a mess
written by David, September 20, 2008
I thought Lutz's comments on cialis online shop the ... hirsute ... women who will buy the Volt to be quite enlightening. It's clear that he is aware of how to get levitra the market segment, and the fact that they have built this product shows they take it seriously as an economic force, but from his comments one can clearly deduce that the leadership at GM doesn't take the people who make up that segment seriously. And that's why, even though they may be first to market with a product, it will be a product that doesn't understand its buyer. And I think this makes it an excellent example of why the big three are in such dire straits, and are headed for another handout.

Don't get me wrong - the Volt is an exciting product, and may even nail all the needs. But if it does, it will either be because the leadership at GM kept their hands off it and let people who care about what the buyers care about do the design, or it will be due to blind luck. And that's no way to run a company.
