"The GM EV1 Story"

The "Big Car" YouTube channel has a short documentary on the EV1 that is quite good. They guy has a good formula for making these.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

The charging paddle needed to die.
It had most of the complexity of a chademo, all of the cost of chademo and then some, the inefficiencies of wireless and the speed of a standard level 2.

The charging paddle looked so odd. On a sidenote, sometimes I wonder how the setup of a Chevrolet Bolt would fare into something more similar to the EV1.
