Default Saturn EV1 - Electric car

I watched a documentary over the weekend concerning the above Saturn EV1.

WOW I remember seeing a couple of these cars on the road.

"Who Killed the Electric Car" by Chris Paine was written and directed in 2006.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Who_Kil...lectric_Car%3F

and

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Motors_EV1

General Motors had first hand knowledge on how to "kill" Saturn way before now.

Since they were so adamant on "crushing" the EV1 vehicles you can bet they "crushed" all of the 2010's already produced.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Saturn EV1 - Electric car

GM had knowledge on how to close Saturn before, after the closure of Oldsmobile. The EV1 isn't really a similar case.

The EV1 wasn't a Saturn engineered or badged vehicle, it was done by GM and Saturn retailers were where they were leased and serviced. I doubt they'd crush any 2010 Saturns (if any were even produced) when it's much easier to sell them for fleet use or similar. 2010 models weren't any different from the last couple years of each model, and they're not taking all of those back, vs. taking back every EV1.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
