Amectran Electric Cars - the story of years of struggle to introduce new revolutionary electric car technology.
Amectran's electric automobiles were to be cars of the future - to last for 75 to 100 years - to stay current with
new technology as it is introduced - to save money - to help the environment - in general, to be of benefit to mankind.
Electric automobiles, electric cars and/or electric vehicles are the nomenclatures applied to the modern day (2015) electric
automobile, however, it is a misnomer. Today's electric automobiles are merely gasoline cars with electric motors and batteries -
they are definitely not 'real' electric automobiles.
following documents show 41 years of striving to introduce an entirely new concept to the American public - the
idea that it would also be electric was not received with fervor by the automobile industry in 1980 and some even say the
oil industry - rather it was like Preston Tucker's struggle to introduce new technology in 1947 - see the movie "Tucker a Man
and His Dream.
As you will find, it did not turn out that way - a great loss to the buying public.
