    Why do/did so many people evaluate the EV1 as if it was intended to be the pinnacle of EV development? It was only the very first semi-commercial EV from GM.

    Everybody should know that you never swing for the fences on the very first pitch. As a first EV, the EV1 wasn't a home run, but it was a very solid base hit. It should have been something GM could have built on, refined and further developed. By now, GM could have been on EV3, and have the range up and price down to something approximating parity with the dino fueled rides.
