5.0 out of 5 stars GM EV-1 ,we will not forget you, 22 Aug 2007
This review is from: Who Killed The Electric Car? [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
This great documentary, directed by Chris Paine shows the last days of the electric cars being dramatically taken from their owners to be destroyed.

I thoroughly recommend it to anyone interested in electric vehicles and being non Dependant on petrol.

I heard about this documentary in several internet pages discussing cars with low environmental impact, and it took me a while to get it, I bought form amazon.com (USA) region 1 and had to watch it in my computer.

I am glad this is now available in region 2 at a reasonable price (marketplace that is ).

The people who owned the cars felt very passionately about them and had real love for their cars and for they represented, it is heart breaking to see them being taken away in front of their eyes and how General Motors did its utmost to shred to small pieces.

The movie then goes to explore the several factors involved in the making of electric cars and the future possibilities of it ,including new batteries and solar panels , needless to say the car and oil industry will try very hard for them not the be available for the general public for a long time.

Sadly for us in Europe the range of electric cars is appallingly bad, there nothing but a glorified children's toy with an incredible short range and they look ugly, they are also most impractical.

There are some "super-hybrid" (125 mpg , plug-in hybrid with a range of 60 miles on electric ) cars that will be launched in them market before 2010 ,but nothing compared to the beauty of the GM EV-1 which hit the roads in 1996.

I feel that the oil and car industry killed the electric car but maybe in the , no so far , future the electric car will kill the oil industry and I hope to be around to watch it .

Mi padre ya me habia explicado (en los años sesenta) como la industria del petroleo compraba las patentes de cualquier cosa que implicase el NO CONSUMO de petroleo... claro... especialmente patentes relacionadas con los motores de automoviles...
Es una vieja historia de la estupidez humana... pero no va a ser la ultima...me temo...
