General Motors: Sell Your EV1 Electric Car to American Drivers! sign now

General Motors built over a thousand EV1 highway-capable electric vehicles (EVs) from 1996-1999. GM marketed to consumers in southern California, available only by lease.
Promotion for the EV1 has been limited and partial.
The EV1 was withdrawn from production in 1999. GM argued that there was no demand for EVs, in spite of the thousands on waiting lists for the cars. There are currently only 3500 EVs in the United States.
A study, The Current and Future Market for Electric Vehicles, was done by the experienced automotive market research company the Dohring Company for the Green Car Institute (on a grant by GM). The expected sales of EVs in the US would start at 12,000 to 24,000 a year and expand toward 180,000 to 270,000 yearly over five years. Conclusion: The market for EVs exists. It is simply awaiting the right products, properly marketed to meet consumer needs, to blossom.

93\% of Americans polled recently support clean-air transportation. Most would even pay more for it.
GM is currently suing the California Air Resources Board in an attempt to evade all zero-emission vehicle requirements. Automakers are ignoring a profitable market at the behest of the oil industry.
We, the undersigned, in support of energy independence and clean air, demand that GM begin selling electric vehicles to the American public.
