We were lucky enough to be involved with the General Motors Electric Vehicle program. It started with the Impact, pictured above.
This was a hand built prototype that drove quite well and had a lot of zip. The only complaint we had was the whine that the transmission made (much improved in the EV1 version). With only one gear, it made for a smooth transfer of power to the wheels.
On the next pages are some of the pictures I managed to take during our year long experience with the EV1. I might even have an AVI clip so you can hear the ride.
Notice the Police on the left.
