Time to Bring the EV1 Out of 'Mothballs'?
Longtime automotive journalist John McElroy has a modest proposal for General Motors: Take the EV1 electric car out of mothballs and put it back on the road.
GM has its own plans for future electric cars, but McElroy makes an interesting case.
Gas cost about $1 a gallon when the EV1 debuted in 1996. The two-seat compact could go 70 miles on a battery charge, required an expensive charging station and needed to be plugged in overnight. GM leased about 1,000 EV1s to customers over three years, losing an unspecified bucket of money in the process.
