     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. 
       The 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.
The World's First "REAL"* Electric Automobile
