The Electric Car Conspiracy ... that never was
Unfortunately the article is kinda long...
but I like this author
check it out. Basically it boils down to: The movie Who Killed the Electric Car? which mercilessly hammers on GM for cancelling the EV1 is a load of crap. Something I happen to agree with:

Totally, I read a couple articles that state the same information. Leave it to the media…
Who cares about the Blue Oval crowd and their little Ponys? We're getting our Camaro back-and it'll be Supercharged!-MDAII

the public didn't want the EV1
the government didn't mandate that electric vehicles were to be built
none of the other automakers even tried (to the best of my knowledge)
GM lost money on the experiment (i think)
Thats why the electric car died. So if you have something that you are losing money on, that nobody wants, and you don't need to make why would you continue? Not sure why they crushed them all though . . .
Note, if I've gotten any facts wrong in the above, just ignore any points I made with them
