Blogger Interview with GM’s Nick Zielinski & Dr. Gary Smyth
GM’s Nick Zielinski, Chief Engineer of the Volt and Gary Smyth, GM’s Director of Powertrain Systems, sat down to dinner with a group of bloggers including Sam Abuelsamid of AutoblogGreen, Todd Kaho of Green Car Journal, Lyle Dennis of GM-Volt.com, Philip Proefrock of Ecogeek and Green Options.com, and Matt Mayer of GroovyGreen. A wide range of topics were covered from the Volt to Li-Ion batteries, flex-fuel, V2G, CAFE standards and more. Pardon the audio–this was done at a very noisy restaurant, and while the conversation went for two hours, we stopped recording after 40 minutes due to the loud orchestra that started playing, and so we could enjoy our dinner. Lyle has a great write up from the event.
