Found another EV1!!! In Cleveland, of all places.

Went to the Cleveland Auto Show today, and low and behold, they had an EV1 on display!!!! I was ecstatic!













I also got to drive a Hydrogen Fuel-Cell Equinox which was SUPER FUN!

I think someone should produce EV1-style wheel covers.

Sean,

You are among the handful of people on this forum who have seen the EV-1 once, let alone a couple of times!

I wonder why it is that GM still has not just "freshened up" the EV-1 and started production again?

Can we get solid plastic wheel covers anywhere, and carve 'em?

Sean, THANKS!! Was it original, all computers/batteries, or were the drivetrain components removed and it just a shell?

Nevyn- no idea, sorry. It belongs to a museum so I'd guess it doesn't move under it's own power.

Look at the front fender gaps, that thing has had its powerplant yanked.

Because then they would be admitting that the EV1 was actually a viable car...? And that they could build a better EV in the early 90's than today... That will never happen unfortunately...
