Who Killed The Electric Car?

Has been curious since long why electric car was not popular till nowadays. In terms of technology, what is so sophisticated if man could travel to space and land on the moon in the late 60's?

By chance I found clips titled "Who killed the electric car?" on YouTube. This 2006 documentary film unveiled some hidden facts that the electric car was indeed marketed in 1990. The oil industry was accused manipulating the politics and car companies to scrap this plan so to defend their trillion-dollar business.

It is sad to learn that the short vision of a handful decision makers and the greediness of unscrupulous businessmen have cultivated the oil crisis today, and the global warming indirectly.
