The History of the Electric Vehicle

We have to go back to the 1800s when the first electric car was developed after numerous breakthroughs in technology. The first electric vehicle hit the road in the late 1890's thanks to William Morrison, a chemist, who had developed storage batteries far more powerful than what had then been available. Fact - The First Electric Vehicle was actually a horse-drawn-carriage Morrison attached 24 of his storage batteries along with an Electric Motor to the rear axle of a horse-drawn carriage. He then developed the controls for the power and the steering, so that the driver had complete control of the vehicle.


Morrison invented the first practical self-powered four-wheeled electric carriage in the United States. Since then, electric cars have come and gone, some major car manufacturers have coined the idea. It was Henry Ford's Model T that saw an increase in a gasoline vehicle become widely purchased. By 1912, the gasoline car costs only $650, while an electric roadster sold for $1,750. Fast forward to the 20th century when manufacturers are under pressure to ensure their Vehicles are environmentally friendly. Thankfully, technology is readily available to provide users with the vehicle they need and want.
