There are over 250 million private vehicles in the US.  Less than 3% are electric (EV) or plug-in hybrid (PHEV) cars.

Who Killed the Electric Car,” a 90-minute documentary about General Motors’ EV1, is a must-see for anyone interested in this industry.  Run out to your local public library and grab a copy.

Further fascinating material can be found at the Electric Auto Association site.  EVcast offers entertaining daily podcasts, and AutoBlogGreen has a beautiful photo gallery of alternative production and concept cars.

There’s a vibrant community in support of electric fuel.  Detailed background and discussions of ELECTRIC CARS, SMART ELECTRIC GRIDS AND ALTERNATIVE ENERGY can be found on these sites:
