Note that Coda has had problems, the BMW Active E is not coming to production, but the i3, which is more of a compliance vehicle (due in US next spring). Would like to see some more of these types of tests, now that there are more all-electric cars available.

Must See Documentary: “Revenge of the Electric Car”

Director: Chris Paine
Documentary

I finally saw “Revenge of The Electric Car” last week of June. It goes all the way up to the pre-production version of the Tesla Model S. This movie gives insight behind the scenes of what it takes to get EVs on the road. I highly recommend it.
