After seeing the great documentary, Who killed the electric Car? I was dismayed to read this, Smithsonian Kills the Electric Car:
After revoking and destroying their EV1s, General Motors gave a handful of them to museums as historical pieces. Now, the only fully intact EV1 on display has been removed from view at the Smithsonianâ€™s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C., to make room for a robotic VW Touareg designed by Stanford University, what the Washington Post called a â€œhigh-tech SUV.â€
Aww… That’s too bad. Documentaries like Who Killed The Electric Car? are good stuff. Just like reading new reports like the one on teenage driving behaviors. As a parent, this kind of data has certainly helped me out.
