For amusement's (and disappointment's) sake, I'm going to waste a bit of time listing EV companies from the recent past who have offered up nothing but vaporware, or have folded completely with nothing to show. I fear charlatans and false promises have been more common than actual, shipping, viable products in this still-nascent field.
How I'm going to go about this is to go chronologically through my thread over on Ridemonkey.com, the alternative personal transportation thread
, and then look up the current status of the companies about which I'd posted so glassy-eyed in the past.
First up:Clever Cycles Stokemonkey.
Current status: Out of production indefinitely as of 2011.
