    Nov 9, 2011: Tesla's Elon Musk, GM's Bob Lutz To Appear On 'Charlie Rose' Tonight

    Tesla's Elon Musk, GM's Bob Lutz To Appear On 'Charlie Rose' Tonight


    And they'll appear tonight on Charlie Rose, to discuss the auto industry, electric cars, and (we hope) various other wide-ranging topics.
    "Tonight" is tonight, November 9th, 2011.
    Buying an EV is one thing, being able to drive it beyond city limits another...

    "Check local listings" ALERT:

    According to local listings here, Bloomberg West is NOT showing the Musk & Lutz interview tonight. It is on WEDU+ at 11.00pm EST in SD but is available on PBS-HD at midnight EST tonight (that is 12.00am 11/10/11 if you're setting your DVR). On FIOS that's channel 503 in the SW Florida area.

    Great quote from Bob Lutz (former Vice Chairman, GM):
    The Model S is "clearly one of the best-styled medium-sized to large-sized sedans in the world today."

    And I was surprised to hear that he went as far as directly saying that he expects Tesla to become successful.

    Other nibblets(take them for what they're worth):

    -Deliveries begin in July (not new, but other statements seemed to say "no later than July"...although perhaps Elon was simplifying.
    -fully loaded performance version @$100k. (again not new, but seems to give more certainty of the price being at 100k vs. 90k or 110k).

    I wish Lutz hadn't so grossly underestimated the Roadster's specs, even though he was trying to compliment the Roadster's technical achievements. He said 0-60 in 4.5 and 200 miles.

    More:
    -Model S will get 5-star rating in every category (seems very confident, to the point of certainty). I'd be surprised if he would say this without excellent data to back up the claim.
    -reiterated 0-60 in 4.4 for the performance version...not 4.5s.

    Yes, but that could be without pano roof, ext. warranty, and other highly desirable options. I'm still hoping for $100k, but bracing myself for $110k.
