Re: [DMCForum] RE: [DML] 50 Worst Cars-What Moron Wrote This?



Comparing destruction of the thousands of EV1's,  almost all of the 
S-10s, the Renaults, (yes, see the movie)  the Ford EVs and a number of 
the Toyota EVs

to destruction of SINGLE prototypes is a ridiculous comparison.  
Prototypes generally are not complete vehicles.  They all have custom 
parts and sheet metal.

The EVs were mass produced vehicles.

If you saw the movie Who killed the electric car?

You would see the well documented lack of maintenance.
In fact, GM required the cars be checked every 5k miles. They were 
shocked by the lack of any wear or need of replacement parts!

Yes, a few of the S-10 , Ford EV trucks, and Rav 4s still survive, But 
these were NOT leased vehicles.  They were sold to private parties who 
refused to give them back.

As for the EVs in the museums-GM REMOVED THE AC DRIVE TRAIN!  
(Also-shown in the movie) so the cars could not be driven. WHY?

BTW,  guess which drive train is in the Tesla?   AC Proposulsion.  GEE, 
maybe it works.  OR maybe, had these EVs not been shredded and GM 
stopped supporting them-  YOU could go to AC propulsion to get them 
worked on.
Hmm?  Competition?

Well, Gee a company in Pheonix now services the NiMH batteries in the 
S-10 trucks.  Yes, there was a market that GM and the oil companies 
wanted to try to kill.
