With gasoline prices approaching $4/gallon, fossil fuel shortages, unrest in oil producing regions around the globe and mainstream consumer adoption and adoption of the hybrid electric car (more than 140,000 Prius' sold this year), this story couldn't be more relevant or important. The foremost goal in making this movie is to educate and enlighten audiences with the story of this car, its place in history and in the larger story of our car culture and how it enables our continuing addiction to foreign oil. This is an important film with an important message that not only calls to task the officials who squelched the Zero Emission Vehicle mandate, but all of the other accomplices, government, the car companies, Big Oil, even Eco-darling Hydrogen as well as consumers, who turned their backs on the car and embrace embracing instead the SUV.

The boxy, small EV shown being crushed in the movie was the Honda EV-Plus. They, like the sleek GM EV-1, were only available for lease; several returned to Honda, and were converted into fuel cell demonstration vehicles. For a while, you were able to lease them through EV Rentals (at several Budget Rent a Car locations). See more »
Warning : Watching this may lead you to buy an electric car.
Highly recommended to anyone and everyone. I have given a 10/10 rating to this documentary because to me the whole electric car concept looks quite feasible and in fact more reliable than the gasoline cars. Some people may say that the documentary is biased in favor of the electric car but what about the biasing that has been done by Unlce Sam, Oil Companies, CARB and a whole lot of agencies we don't even know that were involved towards saving the gasoline cars. And I would also like to tell that I am not an environmentalist, not a member of any save the electric car group. All I want to say is that watch this documentary and you be the judge in the end.
