This video goes over the GM EV1 as a brand new car design. Understandably Darrell wanted to record the EV1 for posterity, to keep alive the memory that electric cars had existed. I think he was purposely squeeling the tires to show off.

EV1 - Driving it the final week before the crusher.

My 1997 EV1. Footage taken in November, 2003 just a week before the car was returned, under duress, to my local Saturn dealer. Soon after, the car was crushed. As you can clearly see, the car deserved a good crushing - for my own good.
