Bob Lutz Says Electrified Vehicles Will Be 15 Percent of Global Sales in 10 Years

“You can’t get there from here with a conventional drivetrain,” former vice-chairman of General Motors Bob Lutz stated at the Autobeat Insider Conference in Dearborn, Michigan on Thursday.

The oft-outspoken Lutz was referring to the inability of automakers to meet upcoming US fuel economy standard and European carbon dioxide emission guidelines with conventional gasoline engines.

Instead, said Lutz, automakers will be forced to turn to electrified vehicles to meet stringent guidelines. Lutz believes automakers must focus on plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles, and turn to lightweight materials in the manufacturing of future vehicles. All this must be done without significantly increasing costs for consumers.
