Who Killed the Electric Car

www.amazon.com/Who-K..
Category: Entertainment
In 1996, electric cars began to appear on roads all over California. They were quiet and fast, produced no exhaust and ran without gasoline. Ten years later, these futuristic cars were almost entirely gone. What happened? Why should we be haunted by the ghost of the electric car?

In a sad twist of technological birth and infanticide, General Motors - with assists from the oil industry, the Bush administration, cowardly California energy officials and apathetic consumers - doomed the future car to the literal scrap heap of history.

Chris Paine's documentary about General Motors' development and withdrawal of the innovative, environment-friendly EV1 automobile is bound to reverberate with anyone who's fallen in love with a product only to see it irrevocably yanked from the market.

"Forget everything you think you know about electric cars and discover this terrific documentary that exposes the real story behind General Motors' EV1 electric car that won the hearts of everyone who drove them when they were made available to a limited sector of the public in 1996 through a lease program. Director Chris Paine interviews automakers, legislators, engineers, consumers and car fans to solve the riddle of how and why the clean-running cars were repossessed and shredded by General Motors. The film shows how politicians on both sides of the isle conspired with oil companies and car manufacturers to rob our ecology of one of its most promising assets. Charlie Sheen narrates this entertaining and crucial movie."
