From Wikipedia...

"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Motors_EV1"

<i>In 2006, former GM Chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner stated that his
worst decision during his tenure at GM was "axing the EV1 electric-car
program and not putting the right resources into hybrids. It didn't
affect profitability, but it did affect image."[47] Wagoner repeated
this assertion during an NPR interview after the December 2008 Senate
hearings on the U.S. auto industry bailout request.[48] In the March
13, 2007 issue of Newsweek, "GM R&D chief Larry Burns . . . now wishes
GM hadn't killed the plug-in hybrid EV1 prototype his engineers had on
the road a decade ago: 'If we could turn back the hands of time,' says
Burns, 'we could have had the Chevy Volt 10 years earlier,'"[49]
referring to the forthcoming plug-in hybrid car which was hailed as
the spiritual and technological successor to the EV1.</i>

I wish there were some around for you to test drive and write an
article about.  If a Power Wagon, why not an EV1?
