In a recent Bahama Pundit article I recalled the Silver Volt - an electric car project in the Bahamas from almost 30 years ago.
A Michigan company called Electric Auto set up a pilot assembly plant in Freeport to produce the Silver Volt on a modified GM chassis. It had a top speed of 70 mph, a range of up to 100 miles and could recharge its batteries in just 90 minutes.
Reports claimed that the cars would sell for $15,000. About 300 prototypes were to be built in Freeport for road-testing in Florida. But unfortunately, only 12 models were produced before the company pulled out. However, recently we received this email from Dr Barry Iseard, a vice president and director at Apollo Energy Systems.
