Yesterday, Lawrence Ulrich of MSN Autos reported Audi US President Johan de Nysschen called Chevy Volt buyers "idiots." Today, de Nysschen is trying to distance himself from those comments through his Facebook page. Yes, Facebook.
"Nobody will pay a $15,000 premium for a car competing with a Corolla," said Audi of America President Johan de Nysschen. "There are not enough idiots who will buy it." Really? Put your money where your mouth is, Johan.
