Great videos.
The one thing that really makes me see red is how big oil has stopped us from really using electric cars.
GMC made the EV-1 and Toyota RAV4-EV that uses the EV95 batteries. Thing is Chevron bought the control for these batteries and refuses to let anyone manufacture them. We still have about 4-6 years to wait until the 17 year patent runs out then some one can manufacture and sell these batteries.
Think going 80mph and having a range of around 160 miles per charge...
GMC on the EV-1 car only leased them and refused to sell them; instead the CARB in Calif. wussed out and the cars were destroyed.
Think what it would be like using the EV95 batteries instead of having to put 1500 pounds of batteries in the car.
