Who Killed the Electric Car? movie review and general rambling

conversion kit to convert your gas car to an electric carThe other day, Jonathan and I ran across the movie "Who Killed the Electric Car". When we saw it, we knew we had to watch it.

Having an electric car has been something we've been wanting for a long time now. In fact, I remember back when I was in high school thinking that it would be awesome to have one. There was even one featured briefly on Seventh Heaven once, and I never saw an electric car again.

Now I know why.

I highly recommend that you take a look at "Who Killed the Electric Car". It really opened our eyes to some of the practices of the oil industry, and GM.

Who Killed the Electric car is a great documentary about the short life of a very popular electric car in California. If you have ever wondered what happened to an electric car, I suggest you watch it.

I can tell you one thing, I for one will never look at GM the same way again.

I'm not one for destroying a company. But, I am one to promote when I think something is a good thing. An electric car is a good thing. The technology for electric cars exists. But, companies are still not making them. At best, they make a hybrid. A hybrid vehicle, such as the Prius, is a start, but it's not a solution.

In "Who Killed the Electric Car?" they offer many points for who it could have been without pointing a finger. They just tell the story and offer suggestions. It's not one of those documentaries where they're trying to force a specific point of view on the general public. They just tell it how it is.

Unfortunately, at the moment, if you want to have an electric car (like I do), your best option is to buy a kit and convert your gas car into an electric car. You could even buy an old car from a junk yard and then a kit and instructions and learn how to convert your car to an electric car. The cost is less than you might expect. I've even seen places where you can buy an electric car for about $10,000.

We've found this electric car conversion kit. While we haven't tried it yet (as we don't have a car), we will definitely have an electric car in the future, and we think that this electric car conversion kit is a great place to start. Check it out.
