[DMCForum] More EV 1 Disinformation

Lie #1

"Most EV-1's, which are sitting on a vast lot in Van Nuys, Calif., will  
be dismantled and their parts recycled, G.M. says. About 75 will end up  
in Rochester, where they will be driven by the company's fuel-cell  
researchers and other employees; a handful will go to colleges and  
museums."

Lie #2
"G.M. says that extending the leases could cost the company lots of  
money in warranty claims and parts overhead."

Gee, this did not bother GM with Fieros,  Oldmobiles, Toronodo, etc.  
etc.  How about these cars with the computer dash boards,  or the heads  
up display Corvette,  very rare, very few produced.  All these cars  
were canceled but they could afford to inventory the parts.

Heck, the 1969 Camaro had a traction package option that was only  
installed in 186 cars.   Yet, GM stocked the parts for years!  They  
built hundreds more of the EV 1.   Don't forget the motor and converter  
were built by AC propulsion.  GM would not have to store these!  The  
most expensive item.

Lie #3
No manufacturer goes into business to mass-produce vehicles only to end  
up with less than a thousand.

Ever here of the ford Pantera?  How about the AC Cobra?  Viper?  etc.
