I thought it was interesting that Lutz kind of insulted their target consumers for the car twice in the interview, neither of which was in joking.
1st, he stated that "30k scientists all over the world agree with me - CO2 is not responsible for global warming"
2nd, he agreed with colbert, saying that it would attract "a different kind of woman" - the grungier type. There are lots of environmentalist women that aren't hippie, nonshaving ones.
I still think he wants it to fail. Sounds like he's one of the people who destroyed the EV1, which was a better car than the volt IMO. "aerodynamic drag on a gas car, and you just lose a little more gas. On an electric car, this results in a significant reduction in range" Ummm, why not get a 500 mile range on a gas car rather than a 350 mile range?
argh, venting... I won't be able to afford the car anyway.
