Top critical review
A film mostly for emotive, ill-informed conspiracy theorists whose research into the subject will end at Chris Paine's word.

It's never been easier to get your hands on an electric car, especially with government incentives, so I suppose the answer to the film's question would be 'no one'.
A skewed, one-sided argument is presented here that generally ignores the culture of US automobiling at the time of the EV1 inception. Only 2,000 EV1s were ever leased at a time when a gallon of gas cost $1.30 and 207.8 million combustion engine vehicles were already on the road delivering better performance and a wider variety of style.
Still, the film should give the more feeble minded among us proficiency in understanding how economics, 'Big Corp' and the 'PTB' operate.
If they haven't already learned how the world works in one viewing of Zeitgeist that is.
