This made for interesting first-time viewing in 2014. It's a shame not all that much has changed under the Obama administration, though at the same time the success or failure of electric vehicles should no longer 100% be laid at the feet of U.S. automakers- were they feasible for mass production and consumption, I don't see why Japanese, European, Indian or Chinese manufacturers would be holding back.

this is what EVERYONE needs to see; so they understand why people don't care about environmentally friendly cars, and also their health!

Describes the fight between money, industry and ecology as well as the tension between responsibility and development. You can really see how something good gets squashed because of someone’s opposing interest. Eye-opening (or confirms what you’ve always suspected). I wonder what our children will say at this chapter in our history, how we could have made things better, but “interests” got in the way…

This is a sad story. To make more good things last. We as individuals should make a clear decision when something is good for us as a whole, and we should make it loud and clear to the government and the industry, which are unfortunately do not necessarily work for the people.

Who Killed the Electric Car is the best movie ever! It describes how General Motors created the EV1 and also how they squashed this perfectly good car, and all the ‘reasons’ why they decided to do that. It also describes the peaceful protest and vigil against what GM had planned to do and why the protesters got arrested. I would recommend this movie to anyone. The PG rating is for the only ‘bad word’ in the movie: ‘pigshit’.

Spread the word!!!
