A documentary that investigates the birth and death of the electric car, as well as the role of renewable energy and sustainable living in the future.
The boxy, small EV shown being crushed in the movie was the Honda EV-Plus. They, like the sleek GM EV-1, were only available for lease; several returned to Honda, and were converted into fuel cell demonstration vehicles. For a while, you were able to lease them through EV Rentals (at several Budget Rent a Car locations).
A fuel cell car, powered by hydrogen made with electricity, uses three to four times more energy than a car powered by batteries.
