Will GM take all of them back and crush them in several years?
Announcement via LinkedIn says he joined the growing team at Chinese-backed EV maker Faraday Future.
Those who forget history are condemned to repeat it. We're not sure how that applies to the GM
Electric-vehicle aficionados have their own version of an Elvis sighting, and the most recent example is at Missouri S&T in Rolla, MO, about 100 miles southwest of St. Louis. There, an old General Motors EV1 electric vehicle sits, its body relatively intact but its drivetrain non-functional, Jalopnik reports.
A concours d'elegance (French for "parade of elegance") is a high-zoot, high-buck display of mostly pristine historic and collectible automobiles, most of them unaffordable to most of us. Probably the best known such events in the US are the nose-in-the-air Pebble Beach Concours in Monterey, CA, the younger, fresher Amelia Island Concours no
Leave it to the builder of an electric vehicle called "White Zombie" to dream up a scenario straight out of a horror movie. In this case, it's an old General Motors EV1 electric vehicle seemingly brought back from the dead in the guise of a first-generation (and nearly carbon copy) Honda Insight hybrid, according to
We often throw the word "awesome" around when talking about certain electric vehicles with extraordinary capabilities. In the case of the EV1 desert race buggy from Strategic Recovery Institute (SRI) however, the descriptor seems somewhat inadequate. Fabricated by Strategic Racing Designs (SRD) using a Pikes Peak-proven drivetrain from EV West, this thing knocks your everyday "awesome" t
Why Not Improve The Cheap Chemistry?
There's a good reason that Aerovironment proudly displayed the 20-year-old EV1 in its booth at the Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS26): it's not a newcomer.
Inside Line is at it again, this time with a list of the 100 worst cars ever made. While we were pretty pleased with the website's choices for its 100 best earlier this year, this one is somewhat less satisfying, which is to be expected.
The Detroit Free Press is reporting that former General Motors CEO Robert C. Stempel has passed away in Florida at the age of 77. The chief executive began his career at GM as an engineer in 1958, but worked his way up to several high-ranking jobs by the 1970s. After running Pontiac, Opel and the Buick-Oldsmobile-Chris Shunk
We know that General Motors has tried to trademark "range anxiety," but did someone in the company actually come up with the term? In an interview with Txchnologist, GE's new science and technology magazine, Posawatz said:
John Wayland (A.K.A. Plasma Boy) is best known for building the record-setting White Zombie racer. His latest electric vehicle project, the Silver Streak, puts the emphasis on distance rather than quickness. That is not to say the Honda Insight conversion will be pokey (in fact, we're pretty sure that word isn't in Wayland's vocabulary). However, it won't be hitting the quarter-mile mark in 10.258 seconds at 123.79 miles per hour like its
The storied General Motors' EV1 is in the spotlight once again, thanks to the "Race to the Museum" public voting promotion at the National Museum of American History. A main subject of the 2006 film Who Killed the Electric Car?, most EV1s were destroyed in 2003. A few were made inoperable and given to universities and museums with the caveat that the vehicles may never be driven out on public roads. Earlier this month, one of the few survi

Remember the documentary "Who killed the Electric Car?" Director Chris Paine created the film in 2005 and 2006 to bemoan the decision of some automakers to kill off their electric car programs. It's now five years later and Paine and company are back with a vengeance videotaping "Revenge of the Electric Car."
