The EV1 Lives! (Well, at Least One of Them)
August 1st, 2008 8:59 AM Share
Detroit's engineering mules are often spared from the crusher, reborn to teach engineering students in leading universities across the country. During my (short) stint with Mechanical Engineering, pre-production iterations of GM's famous small block V8s were at my disposal. Whatever. That wasn't shit compared to what's tucked away in a lonely basement of the famous Kettering University in Flint, MI: a GM EV1. It was there as of last May, and it was blockaded by a bunch of crap, so it's not leaving any time soon. It looks like the Posner-approved machine's supposed death has been somewhat exaggerated. And good ideas never die. They just gather dust.

There was a warehouse in Pontiac MI that had a few of the EV-1 cars. They may still be there.
After reading this, and what others have said. I guess the EV1 never really died, but just moved on and onto new ways to exist.
