GM boss – electric car will help score “no makeup” women

// 29 September 2008

[EDIT: OK, that was the wrong video! Sorry folks – something’s wrong with the site, and it embedded the wrong clip, but if you go here you can watch it]

Bob Lutz, chair of General Motors, is a climate change denier, but if you buy his electric car you’ll save $$$ and it’s a “chick magnet” too. From the press release:

Fuel- efficient — The new chick magnet? Close to nine in 10 women (88 percent) say they’d rather chat up someone with the latest fuel-efficient car versus the latest sports car.

But on Colbert, Lutz had a different perspective – saying that the car will help men attract “nice, no-makeup environmental women”.
