On a personal note, I am thrilled that Chris Paine has made a victorious sequel to his first movie, “Who Killed The Electric Car.” While at Harvard, I accepted a summer internship with General Motors/Saturn and worked on the original EV1. It was hard not to fall in love with that futuristic sports car. Admittedly, it was first generation technology with lead-acid batteries, a short range, and a proprietary charging system. It is exhilarating to see electric vehicles coming back with a vengeance in so many people-pleasing shapes and sizes, and perhaps most importantly, with more attractive ranges that enable drivers to zip around town without anxiety. And the best part is, if you have a pure EV, you never have to go to the gas station! I think EVs are here to stay this time.
