This is an excellent movie, and it makes GM look REALLY bad. I’m sure that GM will have plenty to say in defense, but I won’t be able to believe any of it after the strong case presented in the film. People were lined up, conducting a 24 hour vigil with money in their hands to buy the EV1 electric car, and instead of just selling the cars that were right there on the lot in working order GM crushed them. The GM spokesman said the cars were not being destroyed as we watched footage of the crushed cars. It’s astounding. From what I saw in the film, GM represents some of the worst traits of humanity. Their shortsighted, narrow-minded, greedy, wasteful, and self-centered view is really just sad.
GM is not the only one to blame though. If you really want to know who killed the electric car you will have to go see the movie. If you care about the big picture it is a must-see.
