Bob Lutz
is apparently planning to keep busy in his retirement. In addition to snapping up an advisory role with General Motors, the former automotive executive has just announced that he is joining up with VIA Motors, an electric vehicle manufacturer responsible for converting full-size GM products into extended-range hybrids.

At this point, it's unclear exactly what kind of role Lutz will play in the company or what his duties will be. For that matter, Lutz didn't say whether his new position with VIA Motors will conflict with his advisory role with GM.

Lutz says that of all of the feats he accomplished during his illustrious career across multiple manufacturers, helping usher the Chevrolet Volt to market is his proudest achievement, making the new position at VIA Motors a convenient fit.
