We had high hopes that David Letterman would not grip the steering wheel of the concept Chevy Volt all-electric vehicle and pretend to be electrocuted. The Late Night host did a similar stunt a few weeks back with the Tesla Roadster and it was less than funny. Unfortunately, with GM’s Bob Lutz standing by, Letterman did just that as he was shown the car last night on the show. All I can say is, thank God for Jay Leno.
That aside, it was good to see Lutz giving Letterman some good facts on the Volt — something the host failed at badly while bashing the car on the earlier program. The only real bummer is that we probably won’t get a crack at actually owning one until early 2012. Check out the video below:
