    Sure you'll find interesting - and begs the question why GM builds Volts&Bolts and not a Tesla comparable car.
    Marc Tarpenning seems right on about auto industry outsourcing all.

    Wow... I never knew of the Electrovair!

    What a shame all those years was wasted on oil based cars.

    Also that map of charging stations from 100+ years ago. just wow.

    Thanks for posting.

    Yup. I made it thru all of the boring stuff too.

    I wonder if any of the EV1 service techs from 20 years ago are working on Bolts or Teslas now.

    BTW, I actually drove an EV1 for a short test drive when they were new. Great torque; terrible handling.
