As some of you know, I volunteered to gather up as many questions as I could find here & on our daily threads before VoltNation and took them to NYC last week. Rather than try asking so many questions verbally at VoltNation, and after "scrubbing" these questions to eliminate duplicates and any GM had already answered, I gave a copies of them (approximately 31 total questions consolidated into 20, some with 2 or 3 parts) to both Lyle and to Bob Lutz in NYC.

Because Lyle feels it's unlikely Lutz will ask the GM staff to provide answers without further action on our part, he advised me to start a new forum topic to arrive at "the top 10 questions for GM that we didn't get answered" and let everyone offer feedback on the list, eventually arriving at a final 10. I agree, except that I feel that more than the top 10 on this "Lutz List" of 20 questions could be forwarded to GM by Lyle (he took 250 other questions to GM last fall). Here are the rules:

1) In your response below, rank the 20 questions in the "Lutz List", with your most important listed first & your least important listed last (e.g., 14, 3, 6, 1, 7, 2, 20, 4, 5, 8, 11, 9, 19, 10, 13, 15, 12, 16, 18, 17)

2) For now, please do NOT write in or request new questions in this thread (we're trying to "boil our questions down" to the 10 or 20 most important of those from the list below ONLY)

3) If you only want to rank the top few questions (say 6) it's OK to do so (e.g., 11, 2, 7, 9, 3, 18)

4) Please don't respond with explanations intermingled in your ranking ....it'll make my task of consolidating the top 10, 15, 20 or whatever questions more difficult! So, once again, just post your list of QUESTION NUMBERS in the form x,y,z, .....n, where x is your most important & n is your least important

5) Decide your ranking & post your response here by no later than Wed, April 2nd (one week from today)

The next post contains what I'm calling the "Lutz List" of 20 questions for your ranking.....

"Lutz List" of 20 questions for your ranking; see above post for ranking rules:

1) When will the "design freeze" specs for the vehicle be released?

2) Has GM begun to formulate what different models, options and accessories might be made available?

3) Why not include an EV-only dashboard switch that would be automatically overriden if battery state of charge drops too low?

4) A German company makes a cold catalytic converter that needs little or no warmup time

top 20 questions

1) When will the "design freeze" specs for the vehicle be released?

9) When we will see the new, aerodynamically-enhanced redesign of the Volt: a) As a drawing or sketch? b) As a photograph?

2) Has GM begun to formulate what different models, options and accessories might be made available?

7) On Mar 5, Robert Babik of GM said in a CNN interview,

So far 15 folks here have ranked these questions --THANKS GUYS! Only 4 days remain until April 2, when I'll consolidate your rankings & forward the final "Lutz List" to Lyle, for sending it on to GM. This process will improve our chances of actually getting answers from GM!
