The legendary violinist Jascha Heifetz would’ve been pleased. In 1966, he bought a custom-built electric car in 1966, when smog was terrible in Los Angeles where he lived. It was the the first electric car on West Coast.

I read it here.

  1. Years ago I wrote to GM to suggest that in homage to Heifetz they should name their first electric car the “Heifetz.” They did write back (it was before e-mail even!), but they told me they don’t take suggestions from outside the company.

    Too bad, eh?
