Blast from the past: 1991 CNN report on GM Impact

Tell me if anything from this 1991 report (see video below the fold) by CNN sounds familiar. First introduced at the LA Auto Show, GM planned to sell a 120 mile range electric car very soon. The electric car would be produced in Michigan, with an initial production of twenty thousand and an estimated cost in the high twenties. There were problems with the batteries, which need to be replaced every two years for "several hundred dollars." There was also talk GM might include the cost of the batteries when you buy the car but they won't confirm. Familiar? Yeah, we thought so to.
