Electric cars on the silver screen
ecodrive was invited to a preview of a new US documentary film "Who Killed The Electric Car?"
We would like to stress that we don't think that the electric car is dead at all! In the US, several high-performance vehicles were produced in the 1990s in response to State mandates which were subsequently destroyed by the manufacturers.
A similar fate befell many Peugeot EVs in the UK. To the best of our knowledge only 2 vehicles were sold to private customers and other vehicles were demanded to be returned at the end of leases. Whilst ecodrive was successful in saving some of these fantastic vehicles through legal loopholes, many perfectly functioning vehicles have been destroyed.
The UK and European market for EVs is somewhat different and enjoying renewed interest! Viva the electric vehicle!
