Who killed electric car GM

I never here anything about the electric car That GM shredded ( Google "Who killed the electric car"). I have e-mailed many people like Bill O'reiley and others with no responce. A nice looking,powerful, fast electric car. No gas. no smog. No noise. No gas tax. No Opec. No globle warming. No Big GM bailout. GM sold the Battery to Exxon Mobile. Why do we never here about these cars? If GM needs a bailout they should get it from exxon mobile. This car goes 360 miles on a 4 hour charge and no one cares

The "no gas tax" part won't last long. Fuel taxes are what (is supposed to) pay for new roads and upkeep of existing roads. Many states are now looking at a "per mile" tax to compensate for revenue lost to more fuel efficient cars and hybrids. The less fuel we buy, the less revenue state and federal governments get.

And woe to thee that gets caught driving a vehicle on the public roadways that is purely electric or runs on some other alternative fuel not purchased at a taxed pump. (Think used frying oil, home brew alcohol, recovered methane from animal waste, LNG or Propane out of the backyard tank, etc.) If you fail to notify your local DMV that you are driving an alternative fuel vehicle thereby failing to pay the extra road tax and get caught, you will find yourself in court writing a huge check to cover your oversight and that of the ten or so other people doing the same thing they didn't catch.

There is no such thing as a free lunch. This is especially true when it comes to taxes.
