Video Transcript

When you talk to Andy Frank, you see someone who's been thinking about this very hard for two decades, who's a very ingenious guy. He's not only helped develop plug-in hybrid technology, but he's worked on continuously variable transmissions and other energy-saving devices that don't compromise performance. So I think he understood early on that people wanted a cleaner car, but they didn't want to sacrifice range and performance and other attributes that they care about.
