What the hell #35



SUV vs. Electric car

Did you know that over 100 years ago there were more electric cars on the road than gas? Me either. However, it’s true. The first gas/electric hybrid was built with power steering…in 1903.

What am I getting at? Where is the story? The Smithsonian decides to take out and store a GM EV1 -the only one that is still intact. What’s that? The GM EV1 is the only mass-produced electric car that was EVER made (currently electric cars are not mass-produced).

It must be stored to be replaced with something more important, like a Ford Model-T or something…right? Wrong. A Robotic VW Touareg will take it’s place. Well that’s kinda interesting considering the opening of the documentary “Who Killed the Electric Car?” shows GM in a negative view and GM is one of the museum’s largest financial supporters. I mean, why else would a environment unfriendly SUV trump the last existing environment friendly “vehicle of the future”?

Politics. You love it.
