Has anyone seen this amazing documentary? It basically followed what happened in the 90s when the electric cars that being made in California, began to get noticed and swayed the public opinion away from gas cars.
Big Oil companies began to take notice, and squeezed the Big car companies into dropping the whole electric car biz all together. Brand new , totally unused Electric cars were ground into metal dust. Swept under the rug, and no one was the wiser.
The electric car business has always been an interest to me. There has been, in one form or another, an electric car since the early 1900s . Nikola Tesla was said to have had a prototype of a "horseless carriage", but I guess thats as far as it went.
Anyways, thanks to a smarter, more shrewed consumer, looks like hiking up gas prices and blaming it on a wars isn't gonna cut it this time. No matter what the oil companies tried to do, people stood home this Christmas, everyone tightened their belts, no one traveled, everyone is turning their backs towards the oil and gas industries and looking towards something better, and companies are scrambling to get a chance to grab that market again. The only problem this time is these dope new electric cars I've been seeing are fuckin expensive. I mean sure I would love a badass looking Electric car, The Tesla Roadster and the Chevy Volt make K.i.T.T. look like a model T. But who can afford that?
Like seriously, how is anyone saving anything if only a few rich people have electric cars, while the rest of the world is still on gas? By The Way, this is just the U.S. apparently every other country in Europe and China GET IT. They've had cheap Electric cars for years, while we choke down this nasty oil business.
Well It looks like Cheap Electric cars are coming back. While surfing the net, i found one. I was, like ho-lie shit , an electric commuter car for about the price of a Hyundai. Thats pretty hot. Always wanted an electric car, but figured it was going to be one of those eccentric dreams that only the rich can obtain. Even better this small company is located in Philly!! and these puppies are comin out this spring! I'mma start saving up for one now. Also don't forget to see the documentary.
P.S. Im no Tree-hugger, for me its not about the environment, it's about lost technologies that were rightfully ours, but taken from us, out of greed.
