If “Mad Max” Had EVs – Video
Ever wondered how the 1979 Australian dystopian action fiction film – Mad Max would have turned out if electric vehicles were the norm?
Probably not…yet thanks to “a video commissioned by the Pacific Arts Movement for the launch of SDG&E’s #PowerYourDrive Electric Vehicle campaign” here it is regardless.
Our next question? How did they get their hands on a rare Scion iQ electric (an EV Toyota once said they would build thousands of) and then get it out into the desert for filming?
Only 91 of the Toyota’s were made, a ~third of which ultimately found a home performing car sharing services on the US west coast (in the Bay area).
