Topics related to EV businesses
Chrysler ENVI program. Current status: Killed off once Chrysler got their bailout money despite claims that all the EVs above could make it to market in 2010. This program's conception and course is really shameful, even in my jaded opinion.
Piaggio MP3 PHEV. Current status: Vaporware from the perspective of US consumers. I'm not sure if it ever made it into production in congestion-charge-laden Europe.
Miles EV. Current status: Vaporware, the company likely bankrupt (although I haven't seen confirmation of the same). Coda (and BYD) is in the same boat, although the former may have shipped one or two cars in California by now.
Mission One. Current status: Dead. Mission Motors itself still lives in a limited role, trying to source EV components to OEMs instead of building complete machines.
Ford Transit Connect EV. Current status: Dead, although an unknown number of vehicles were built prior to the battery maker, Azure Dynamics, going bankrupt in 2012. InsideEVs.com provides additional confirmation.

Raytheon BluWave Hy-DRA. Offroad, hub-motored, A123-batteried BEV. Current status: NOT vaporware, but only available for your use if you're in the US military special forces.
On a very similar note:
CERV Quantum Clandestine Extended Range Vehicle, an AWD diesel-electric hybrid. Current status: Similarly only available for killing brown people under the flag of the US military.

GM EN-V, basically a monstrous Segway. Current status: Vaporware, although a few prototypes do exist and were test "driven" by journalists including Tim Stevens from Engadget.
Infiniti LE. Current status: Vaporware, although Carlos Ghosn has reportedly green-lighted it for 2014. I'm still skeptical, but since Nissan actually is shipping Leafs in non-negligible numbers this one might have a chance of seeing the light of day yet.
