In this news segment for Houston’s KPRC-TV, Dr. Lawrence Hapstad, vice president for research at General Motors, demonstrates the company’s electric car prototype. Engineers retrofitted an Opel Kadett with a bank of rechargeable batteries powered by a Sterling thermal engine. The result, according to the KPRC reporter, is the world’s first hybrid Sterling electric automobile.
