The Story Of the First Modern Electric Vehicle - 20th Anniversary Of the GM EV-1

Feb 15, 2017

A little over a month ago we published a blog post on our EV Solutions site (our consumer EV charging product line) for the anniversary of the EV-1, the first purpose-built, mass produced electric vehicle from a major manufacturer. AeroVironment and the GM Team co-developed the GM Impact prototype, which led to the creation of the EV-1, but what might be more interesting to readers of this blog is that along the way we created our first AV Test system product. There wasn’t a practical way to test the battery packs and drive trains needed to create the first modern electric vehicle, so our engineers did what they do best and came up with our first test system. These systems were then used to test GM’s hybrid batteries and drivetrains in the 1990’s, and we continued to develop more powerful and innovative systems. We’ve decided to repost that blog here, and we hope you enjoy it!
