Who Killed the Electric Car? (And why Wikipedia is GREAT)

I just saw the movie "Who Killed the Electric Car" which makes a pretty compelling case that years ago General Motors had a working and practical electric car which they took off the market under what are portrayed as suspicious circumstances.

It's an interesting movie but part of me, while never underestimating the corruption and incompetence in government and industry, still felt like there must be another side of the story.

Here's an article in Wikipedia about the film "Who Killed The Electric Car" and evidence in support and opposition to the case made in the movie. While one might quibble similarly with the Wikipedia article, it is replete with references and links to other sites which tell other sides of the story.
