Ed Welburn, General Motor’s global chief designer, at the 2011 NAIAS on Driving the Nation

Ed Welburn, global chief designer, General Motors, took time to talk to Warren Brown, Washington Post, and myself at the 2011 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, MI.

From a designer’s eye, how is the health of the auto industry, the domestic auto industry and Michigan?

What are the issues facing General Motors?  Is General Motors concerned about $5 gallon gasoline? Are they prepared?

What does a concept car say about the manufacturer? What is the role of a concept car?
