A Visionary Plugs In to the Electric Car Race

DETROIT — To say the least, Malcolm Bricklin, chairman and chief executive of Visionary Vehicles, is tenacious.

Bricklin brought Subaru, the gull-winged Bricklin SV-1 and Yugo automobiles to North America from the late 1960s through the early 1980s.

Some of his ventures, such as that with Subaru, were bona fide successes. Others, such as that with the Bricklin SV-1 and the ill-fated Yugo, were failures.

I met and spoke with Malcolm many times recently regarding the new car and he changed positions on the car several times.  So, he’s plugged in but readily willing to change direction mid-stream.
