Re: [DMCForum]



Ryan,

The cost you cited for the EV 1 included the cost for research, 
development and other associated costs.

This was a reference provided by  GM "GM's forward progress, facts vs. 
fiction  6-26-06.  GM has since removed this citation from the 
internet. Surely GM is a reliable source for these numbers.

But wait.  There's more!

Interestingly,  GM also claimed they spent $1 billion dollars on this 
car,  though a portion of this cost was defrayed by the Clinton 
administration funding of battery research.

  YET,  in 1998,  they claimed, they had only spend $400 million.

Gee,  $600 million dollars in more costs AFTER the car was into 
production.  Seems to me SOMEONE was
cooking the books to make the car look bad - so they could kill it. And 
make money for their oil friends.

Can I have some of this imaginary $600 million? I could retire sooner.

Bob
