While no one will be shocked to hear that Lutz is most proud of his work on the Chevrolet Volt, the guy did offer a few insights into the workings of one of the world's biggest car manufacturers. Some of the suits at GM were against bringing the extended-range plug-in to market, and not just because of the company's experience with the EV-1.
In the interview, Lutz says that GM was previously committed to fuel cells as a solution to everyone's fossil-fuel woes, and the company was dumping plenty of cash on R&D in that direction before he managed to steer the Volt into the limelight.
And what about climate change? Lutz famously voiced his disbelief in the theory that CO² emissions from vehicles contribute to global warming. When Ransom asked if he had changed his opinion, the soon-to-be-retired Lutz simply stated that he's not the only skeptic out there. We'll miss you, Bob.
