Bob Beaumont: EV Pioneer Passes: #evworld via @evworldeditor
Bob Beaumont, who thought every home should have an affordable electric vehicle in its driveway and sold more than 2,000 of them, the tiny, trapezoidal creation known as the CitiCar, decades before General Motors and Nissan came up with their own versions, died on Monday at his home in Columbia, Md. He was 79. The cause was emphysema, said his daughter, Dina.
