If you blinked you might have missed a gathering this weekend that will be mentioned in a History of Electric Cars. Saturday there was a PIA fundraiser at Chris Paine's house. The gatherers were visibly emotional when Chris stood on his roof and spoke about his film "Who Killed the Electric Car" and how it documented the actions of GM taking away customer's EV1s and crushing them. Now, here on his patio is GM's one and only prototype of it’s new Chevy Volt straight from its debut in Detroit (via Alt Car expo). The feelings of pride, excitement and grassroots accomplishment were expressed with words from some of the stars of the film and a few of those behind the scenes folk that make things happen. They spoke with humor ("Here we are on a roof -a long way from the back of a truck"), passion and joy tinged with a touch of vindication. GM's fig leaf moment was all filmed for the next movie tentatively titled "Revenge of the Electric Car”. Tesla brought a Roadster and put it in front of the Volt. The two seemed to eye each other over like curious newborn animals. Like children, there was no apprehension, animosity or fear because as different as they are, both of them carry genes from the EV1 and neither really needed to blink.
