Bob Lutz shows of the Volt on Letterman



Bob Lutz is the chief designer for GM. He has been a huge name in the American auto industry for a long, long time.

He came on Letterman to defend the Chevy Volt which Letterman made fun of during a previous interview with Tesla Motors CEO.



EDIT: Here is the first interview I mentioned above:

Letterman payed 100k+ for a tesla and he didn't even know that it was powered by a shit ton of laptop batteries... its like he's not paying attention all the time!

Gotta love Bob Lutz, as if the viper wasn't enough he is the only reason that GM has any products worth offering... even if some aren't available until 2010-2011

Yeah, Letterman is kind of a disgrace to the auto industry here. He is even a huge auto racing fan, and part owner of an INDY team. I'm surprised by his total lack of basic knowledge on future cars.

It wouldn't surprise me if letterman's "interest" in auto's is grounded firmly in his inferiority complex w/ Leno. I mean seriously how could someone own a battery powered car and not have ANY idea how the power supply is configured? There is really only two well known facts about the tesla anyhow:powered by a shit ton of laptop batteries, the chassis is a lotus elise's.
