You can easily find a used GEM Electric car, the first real electric introduced by an American automaker, at used car dealers and at specialty "green" car sales lots. You can also purchase one from Internet dealers or sites. GEM Electrics look like golf cars with special hoods, bumpers and lighting to meet federal safety standards. They were sold by Chrysler dealers until their bankruptcy a couple of years ago. Now with Fiat in the picture at Chrysler, the future of the Global Electric Motorcar is cloudy, as they will probably have its own hybrid based on its tiny 500 Sedan and Coupe.
