Who Killed the Electric car: GM and Chevron.

The daily commute powered by rooftop electrons, not overseas oil imports. This is not new: we've been doing this ever since CARB forced auto makers to produce a few EVs, back in 1997. We're only a few who were given the chance to purchase an EV between Mar. 2002 and Nov. 2002.

Since 1997, we've put over 500,000 miles on leased EV1, HondaEV, RangerEV and purchased Toyota RAV4-EV. Thanks, Toyota, for honorably selling the RAV4-EV, even though they only had 300 left after Chevron sued them over the batteries, likely stopping the production line and killing the program.
