On 10/5/08 CBS’s 60 minutes aired a segment about the electric car race. The story highlights the Tesla Roadster, and GM Volt. Also shown are the Fisker Karma, and some smaller electric models. There are interviews with Tesla founder Elon Musk, and Volt VP Bob Lutz. Although there are some inaccuracies about the electric car industry, overall a well done story.

This was an interesting story. Lutz seems like a bit of a dinosaur with his views and saying that Tesla won’t make it. Reminds me of IBM and Microsoft back in the 80s.

I thought this was pretty bad actually. They really played up the perceived negatives of EVs.

It really pisses me off to see these big 3 automakers that are just unwilling to give into the public on what we want. I really hope these start-up electric car companies make Detroit seriously wake up!! GM biggest mistake was to cave to the oil companies to get rid of the EV1! Just imagine if what the price of gas might be today if GM sold(un-lease)more of the EV1 cars?
