Plot In 1996, General Motors launched the EV1 — America’s first modern electric car. They were economical, environmentally sound, and beloved by their owners (Mel Gibson and Tom Hanks among them). A decade later, they were gone — recalled and destroyed. Chris Paine examines why.
Verdict A story that deserves to be heard, but like the EV1, it’s a quiet achievement that should have been much louder.
