Although “Who Killed the Electric Car?” is an oldie, it shows the facts that stood behind the decision of not only shutting down the EV1 production line, but also destroying all of them altogether. The same story went with the other electric vehicles from Toyota, Honda and Ford.
It’s as clear as daylight that petrol interests dominate the automobile world, and make things worse for the environment. It’s all those people who sell oil and work in the oil industry that don’t let the clean automobile evolve. All the rumors you hear about batteries not being able to carry you more than 100 km… all that is pure BS. We have the technology, and we had it live on our roads.
It seems like GM is trying to re-make a name with its Volt, and it seems much more clearer to me why every automobile manufacturer wanting to build an electric car delayed their release for 2010… you may guess what that reason would be after you watch the movie.
“Who Killed the Electric Car?” is an hour and a half long, but worth watching. Enjoy!
