    side note: EV1 started with lead acid batteries in 1996 - just how lame is GM management?
    General Motors EV1 - Wikipedia
    BMW management not doing much better as they seem to have stalled i3 development sold off carbon fiber assets a decade later - most of those great engineers have left. BMW trying to figure out how to startup electrics again. See the MINI Cooper and note lame i8 hybrid (nice looking for sure).

    side notes: look for 2 short movies
