    Not sure if this is a re-post, but hey ..

    Whilst watching Model S vids on youtube, I came across the full length version of "WHO KILLED THE ELECTRIC CAR" !

    Seems it was uploaded 2 days ago. Not sure if its legit, or if it will be pulled for IPR reasons, but if you've never seen it here it is :-

    Thanks, watched it tonight. I hadn't planned on seeing it because, frankly, that's the past at this point, but I really enjoyed the various interviews. Lutz in particular was a far more interesting individual than I would have expected.

    Thanks for reminding me. Every prospective buyer of these cars should watch this film. Now I understand why TESLA has been so reluctant to lease these vehicles. Lease them and the powers that be can force you to recall them. Sell them, and the cars are no longer yours to recall. As ckessel suggests, try to see this film before it disappears, along with the environment, our schools, and our health care system, not to mention our Bill of Rights.

    Well, as long as there's always a job for the tin/foil manufacturers ;)

    You can always purchase the video or download it from the iTunes store.

    Love the advertisement that GM produced for EV-1... Scary:cool:
    Ad starts at around 19:10 from the beginning of the video.

    Makes me realize even more how important it is for me to stand behind what I believe. I am purchasing my model s to bring about electric vehicles. We all need to stand behind Tesla and get this done!

    > Lease them and the powers that be can force you to recall them. [GeogMan]

    Kinda doubt that happened here. GM did a full retreat on the EV-1 all on its own. Lutz was there, but not part of the decision. Being newish, he missed out on the first maneuvers of the recall. Says he might've effected a reconsideration if he had acted fast enough. Seems believable. But once that diesel locomotive started down the tracks, the EV-1 was history.

    Not available when I try the link here in Australia. Nor is the video available on iTunes. Keeping the colonials in the dark as usual?

    Can you buy it on Amazon.com or do you have a DVD rental service such as Netflix?

    This car was not pulled by GM all on their own, IMHO, but the sad truth is what was accomplished with 1990's battery technology. Everyone that had one of these cars wanted it, how could you say there was no interest, the really sad thing is where would EV's be today if the development was allowed to continue 30 years down the road, the ICE might be a dinosaur and oil would be $40 a barrel and yes I used to work for 2 of the top oil producers in the world.
