Infographic: History of the Electric Car


Ever wonder where the idea for the electric car came from? Yeah, me either… just kidding. The electric car is actually a very old idea, even battling the gas and steam powered cars back in the early-1900s for road supremacy.

Car Rentals UK has made a history of the electric car infographic for us to better understand where this potentially important technology came from.

I'm a car, music, and Howard Stern aficionado. I also love planes, trains, anything to do with science and engineering, as well as politics. I'm working on my screenplays, TV shows, and a book or two. Stay tuned to when I'm really famous and even more awesome.

    Fascinated by the infographic. Thanks for sharing. They do have a long history, but electric cars have still a long way to go to replace petrol and diesel fueled cars completely.
