Who Killed the Electric Car Again?
This morning I hear on the news that the locally made Dynasty Electric car company has sold its manufacturing and design to a company in Pakistan that will build the cars there and then import them back into the US. The full story can be read here. The reason for the move? Government regulations that will not permit these vehicles to operate at speeds higher than 40 km/h so they can run on highways.
It's one of my dreams to drive my very own electric car (or solar powered of course) and my government is making my dream more difficult than it should be. I'm making notes on who killed the electric car and who's taking action on climate change.
