Moral of the story, if Mr. Burns gets the job, he better not screw up what Lutz created, or GM is screwed.
Mr. Burns had better learn how to build something other than sewing machines!
[...] Larry is a very intelligent guy and if the Lutz-itude stays that may also be a good combination.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but you have the wrong Mr. Burns. Please refer to the directory for assistance.

The Volt is NOT a Hybrid tho, so why is it getting compared to them? There is NOTHING like the Volt in the pipeline from any company besides GM.
Exactly. The Volt is, in layman's terms, an electric car that can regenerate most of the charge it loses over the duration of a trip. It does not run on the gas motor, it is only there as a generator, as a back-up. Sort of like how a ... hospital, for example, will have a few generators to make electricity when the power grid is down, after it has been knocked out during a bad thunderstorm, to keep the life-support equipment going.
