General Electric ETV-1 is displayed as part of an electric car exhibit at the Lex Brooklands Auto Showroom, a Volvo dealership across from the Royal Institution in London, UK. The exhibit was created in conjunction with Dr. Roland W. Schmitt's Royal Institution lecture "Electrifying the Auto," delivered on May 21, 1981. The ETV-1 showcased the state of the art electric vehicle technology of the time, and was developed in a partnership between GE and Chrysler with a range of 125 miles on the highway, or 75 in the city.
