In 2006, a documentary titled “Who Killed the Electric Car?” explored the creation, publicizing, and eventual decline in popularity of the electric vehicle in the United States. The documentary blamed everything from ineffective advertising to President George Bush for the marketing failure of the energy efficient vehicles.

“You build a good car and, shockingly, people will buy it,” said Pat.
