What I found most interesting in Lutz's post is his enthusiasm for EVs. He wrote: "I truly believe that electric-drive vehicles have a real future in this country and around the world; the only question is the nature of the power source or sources". In fact, Lutz doesn't really take any options off of the table for future GM cars: plug-in hybirds, more gasoline-electric hybrids and, of course, more E85-capable vehicles are all possible. GM's goal of putting one million hydrogen vehicles on the global market - at a profit - remains in place.
