Bob Lutz joining EV maker VIA Motors

Bob Lutz joining EV maker VIA Motors

is apparently planning to keep busy in his retirement. In addition to snapping up an advisory role with General Motors , the former automotive executive has just announced that he is joining up with VIA Motors, an electric vehicle manufacturer responsible for converting full-size GM products into extended-range hybrids. At this point, it's unclear exactly what kind of role Lutz will play in the company or what his duties will be and all a GM spokesperson would say about Lutz's continued role with GM was that it "won't change because of the move."
