Who Killed the Electric Car? - Interview With Chelsea Sexton & Wally Rippel

Posted on: June 15, 2006 | Views: 256 | Comment

Chelsea Sexton and Wally Rippel, who worked in developing the original GM EV1 electric car, discuss the baffling disappearance of the EV1 and continued U.S. consumer support for electric and hybrid cars.

It was among the fastest, most efficient production cars ever built. It ran on electricity, produced no emissions and catapulted American technology to the forefront of the automotive industry. The lucky few who drove it never wanted to give it up. So why did General Motors crush its fleet of EV1 electric vehicles in the Arizona desert?

Who Killed the Electric Car? chronicles the life and mysterious death of the GM EV1, examining its cultural and economic ripple effects and how they reverberated through the halls of government and big business.
