More on the Electric Car

After an interesting comment on my previous post on Electric Cars topic, "Who Killed the Electric Car" suddenly I am seeing stuff about this topic all over the place.

Here's a great article from the current Atlantic Monthly about GM's new shot at electric car fame and fortune (hopefully)
"Still, he hesitated. GM had called him because of his deep experience with battery-driven electric cars. In the 1990s, he had worked on GM’s EV1, an all-electric technological masterpiece that had done so poorly commercially that GM wound up crushing the cars amid a hail of public condemnation. Farah had been fiercely committed to the EV1, and he was not about to relive the disappointment.“Hell, no,” he said. “I’ve been on programs like this before. They’re not real.” (from "Electro Shock Therapy, Atlantic Monthly")

Does cast another light on the whole EV-1 story. Now I want a Volt!
