Who Killed the Electric Car?


[Hint — the killer has the initials G.M.]

Celsias has posted the whole movie (at least until Sony makes them take it down). It is well worth watching — and not just because I make an appearance to explain the “five miracles” needed for hydrogen cars to succeed.

General Motors is still operating under the delusion that “GM would have a ‘cost-effective’ fuel cell car by 2010.” A “cost-effective” fuel cell car is like “victory” in Iraq — a difficult concept to define in theory and essentially impossible to achieve in practice.

Fortunately, GM is pursuing plug-in hybrids, so at least somebody in the company has a clue.
