Who comes to late is punished by live. GM had already 1996 with the EV1 an electric car. But this had been taken away from the people leasing it and demolished.
The Trauma of the EV1 drivers
Imagine You have a car leased. It's Your dream car. You tell everybody about Your dream car. Not because so much power or more than 300km/h top speed, but because it drives with a very cheap fuel, it's an electric car. You watch the development of the photovoltaic prices and think to make soon a photovoltaic roof on Your house to power Your car.
Commuting without bad environment conscience, a dream becomes real.
But 2000, You are with brutal force pulled out of Your dreams, Your dream car becomes demolished. You have to drive again with one of the gasoline cars, You hate so much.
Nothing with clean environment conscience, You are again a accessary at the global climate change.
