The history of electric cars is way longer than you thought


Simon Whistler from Today I Found Out explains why the history of the electric car is way longer than we thought. The first electric cars were created at the start of the 19th century and by the end of the century London, for example, has its own fleet of electric taxis. Now that something.

The discovery of oil and, throughout time, the huge drop in price and the invention of the electric starter has generated a bigger market for the fossil fuel cars. That was a bad news as the electric cars market simply took a huge dive. Only recently the market kicked back and we see more and more electric cars, but we’re late to the game. Late by 100 years, unfortunately.

Lots of lives and huge technology advancement would’ve been created if humanity used electric cars and stayed this way. Maybe we’ll learn from the past.
