electric car from silicon valley

Silicon Valley to market electric cars
Silicon Valley thinks it can do what Detroit could not — create a thriving business selling electric cars.

another california company built a car in the 80s called ev1. general motors bought the rights to ev1 and, within ten years had completely removed the car from the market.

a new movie on the subject (who killed the electric car?) is due in u.s. theaters in the summer of 2006.

the internal combustion engine is over 100 years old. i find it incredible that, with all our technological advances, it is still in use today. you don't see a lot of steam-powered vehicles (stanely steamer) any more, eh?
