Resurrected EV1's

When GM recalled and crushed the EV1 fleet, a few survived and were given to museums and research institutions. However, in every case the EV1's were lobotomized and non-functional. But, intrepid folks managed to resurrect a few of them.

In early 2014 a pair of EV1's were discovered in China at the National Electric Vehicle Experimental & Demonstration Area near Shantou City in Guangdong Province. These were given to China by General Motors for unknown reasons - today China is GM's largest (or second largest) market, and the site of a huge research facility (in Shanghai) that in part is deep into electric vehicle research.
