These efforts have met stiff resistance from dealer groups around the country. The auto dealers association is definitely creating some problems for us, making it harder to get things done, Musk said during Tesla’s annual ...

Ex-GM CEO Bob Stempel, clean air and EV1 pioneer, dies at 77 Updated Bob Stempel, the engineer who took over as CEO of General Motors after the much-maligned Roger Smith was dumped, has died at 77. Stempel led development of the catalytic converter — a clean air milestone. He also led development of GM’s EV1 electric car and early in his career worked on the original 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado, the first front-drive car in the U.S. since the 1930s Cord.

Also in the lede The car’s discontinuation remains controversial, with electric car enthusiasts and environmental interest groups accusing GM of self-sabotaging its electric car program due to its negative profitability, while also blaming the oil industry for conspiring to keep electric cars off the road.[1] So the nutjobs think that GM should have persevered with an unprofitable program? How is that self sabotage? Just because a reference says it is so (does it?) it doesn’t need to go into the lede. Greglocock (talk ) 01:02, 30 August 2009 ...

How does GM s fabled EV1 stack up against the current crop of electrics? The electric car isn’t exactly thriving, but it’s a lot healthier than it was in 2003. That’s the year General Motors terminated leases of its EV1 electric two-seater, setting in motion the events that would form the backdrop of the documentary film,  Who Killed the Electric Car? When GM hauled its EV1 fleet off to the crusher amid protesting consumers, the car became an automotive martyr and was used as evidence of a conspiracy against EVs. Ten years later, GM is building electric cars instead of crushing them, and the political and consumer climate has changed considerably. Filmmaker Chris Paine even made a ...
