Electric Cars Overview
Electric cars are the great irony of the auto industry. They are widely seen as the wave of the future, silent, emmissions-free wonder cars that will have us humming about the highways science-fiction style. History reveals, however, that electric cars are a relic of the past.
"Relic" might be too harsh; I don't mean to suggest that battery-powered cars don't have a future. Rather, I want to highlight a rather surprising fact: electric cars developed alongside those with internal combustion engines and at the dawn of the 20th century, electric cars outsold their explosive relatives.
So when it comes to electric cars, there is a lot to talk about: a rich history and an exciting future.
In these pages, we will try to cover all of it - yesterday's pioneers and tomorrow's innovators. Enjoy the quiet, smog-free ride!
