GM should ask Tesla how they managed to get a battery pack to work that is far bigger and used Li-Ion batteries that are less safe than the A123's that GM is using. Maybe the secret is to have much less money (like Tesla compared to GM). I don't get it. Also, there are people on the EVDL that tried desperately to get an EV1, and they weren't even given the time of day. Lee Hart has an interesting story about that if anyone wants to ask him.
