How can this be, a GM EV1 electric car for sale.
As far as I know every single one of these made was leased, not 1 was ever sold.
All the vehicles when the lease was up were returned to GM, not one was sold, all recalled and most of them destroyed.
It doesn't surprise me that there are a few remaining floating around but WHO owns them?
How can anybody claim ownership to any one of these when they were never sold to the public?
How can one of these cars be up for sale to the public now?

General Motors EV1 for sale - Never returned to GM "RARE" - Toronto (GTA) Cars For Sale - Kijiji Toronto (GTA) Canada.

Too bad they did not include a picture of what they are claiming to sell. I have seen pics of that model before (yeah, I am a wide interest gearhead), but I cannot imagine that GM would let them sell a car that legally belongs to GM.

$73,000. they want for it, I wonder if this is just a sales gimmick to get you to there lot.
I know that area they list as an address, they must be a independent used car lot, I should go take a look.

Sounds like a GIMMICK to me, but will be interesting.

They don't show a picture of it and say viewing for qualified buyers.
