You probably experienced polution, itís the smog and other contaminants that float in the air we breathe.
In some cities around the world such as Los Angeles, Mexico City and China, you can hear radio or TV alerts like the following...
Alert, today the level of pollution in the air is high.
Children and the elderly should not go outside,
Those who practice an outdoor sport should not do so,
People with asthma should carry their inhalers at all times,
The rest should avoid going out, or wear a mask when doing so.
To solve this situation, a solution was created some 10 years ago.
In 1996, the first electric cars were produced, the EV1 (Electric Vehicle 1). These were made in the USA by General Motors and started to traverse the roads of California.
These were fast cars, reaching 0 to 65mph in less than 9 seconds!
They were silent!
They did not produce any type of pollution, they didnít even have a tail pipe.
They could easily recharge at home from any 110v outlet, or at the mall; you even had preferred parking if you had one of these.
Ten years later these cars from the future disappeared.
How was this possible? Why did it happen?
In the first place you could not buy these cars, you could only lease them and when the lease was finished you did not have the option to buy them.
General Motors took back all the EV1s, in spite of the opposition of its users (on the t-shirt you can read: Save the EV1)
