A quick write based on the story of Chelsea Sexton in the documentary "Who Killed The Electric Car". This started out as part of the National Electric Drive Week song but seemed to be a separate idea that stood on its own.
Standing with the original EV-1 leasees
Laid off when GM’s electric vehicle development was terminated in 2004
After being too successful (it was supposed to fail)
Vigil by the GM lot in Santa Barbara
When GM refused to provide Chelsea an option to buy the last ones
The auto transports took all eighty
to Arizona (to have them crushed, except one)
Chelsea just had a new purpose
Joined forces with the leasees
And created Plug in America
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
