Who Killed the Electric Car? (Part 6)

This episode looks at various questions surrounding battery technology and features an interview with Stan Oshinsky and his wife Dr. Iris Oshinsky of Energy Conversion Technologies who invented a superior form of battery to that originally provided by GM Delco. Oil companies such as Chevron and Texaco purchased the intellectual patents from Oshinsky but refuse to allow for production licensing.
