Bob Lutz: Electric Trucks Should Have Come First | CleanTechnica

Bob Lutz, former Vice Chairman of GM and a key person behind the Chevy Volt, is a famous (or infamous, depending on your perspective) figure in the auto industry. Lutz has worked for BMW, Ford, Chrysler, and GM. He was vice chairman of GM until 2009, and he retired altogether in 2010. However, he now sits on the board of a leading startup in the plug-in electric vehicle market, Via Motors, and he has some strong views on electric vehicles. In particular, he forecasts that an electric car future is definitely coming. Notably, this is coming from a man who actually denies global warming (against the consensus of 97% of climate scientists and 97% of climate research papers).
