General Motors Informative - Revive The Electric Car
WHERE EVER THAT IS -- The Electric Car was killed by GM many years ago when EV1 proved to be so efficient. Since then GM and other American auto producers have flooded the market with large gas guzzlers and advertisements to create a consumer dependent on planned maintenance vehicles.
Tucker proved a durable, safe auto could be produced in 1948 and the BIG 3 made sure it was not allowed to get off the ground. However most of the vehicles produced are still running today!!!
Now the economy is dying because of the insurance, oil and auto industry's greed. America has had to bail you out and you still act as if we are stupid. Well, maybe we ought to ask Congress for a trigger on you!!! If you don't put an appropriate, affordable electric car on the market by mid 2010;we should put out a public option to compete.
You have the technology to produce an affordable, safe, stylish vehicle that can go 140 miles to the charge now. It is also possible to use solar panels on a vehicle for cooling, as Toyota has shown us. I'll bet it would be very very simple to set up solar panels in parking lots as charging stations while people work.
I promise you, the first auto company to get the fully electric car that will go 140+ miles to the charge will win(looks like the Nissan Leaf is leading). Then you only have as long as it takes for the rest of us to convert our current cars over to make money on parts.
Has your greed clouded your vision?
