To the editor: After watching the award-winning documentary, “Who Killed the Electric Car?” I have no sympathy at all for the car industry today.
The EV1 was introduced in 1996 and leased to consumers in California who loved everything about the car. General Motors would not allow any purchase of these and later destroyed the majority of the EV1s by crushing them.
They were discontinued after 1999 and subsequently removed from the roads in 2003 by GM (except for a few). The car’s discontinuation was and remains a controversy.
