The history and success of electric cars go back even further than internal combustion engine vehicles. The first electric vehicle in the form of a tricycle was built by Thomas Davenport in 1834.
History And The Success of Electric Cars
The history of electric cars starts with two major events. The first was the launch and the success of the hybrid-electric vehicles Prius.
It helped to increase the profile of electric cars. The other major event was the starting of a small Silicon Valley start-up, Tesla Motors! It has started to build luxury cars with a range of 200 miles. US Department of Energy has encouraged this company so that in 2010 Tesla launched the Model S Electric Vehicle with 85 Kwh Lithium-ion batteries and a range of 265 miles.
In the same year, Tesla started the Model X, an electric SUV/crossover with similar performance to the Model S.
Develop Technology And Infrastructure
After the Tesla success other firms starting to build. Chevy Volt has launched a plug-in hybrid, in the same year Nissan launched the all-electric vehicle Nissan LEAF!
US Energy Development builds charging infrastructure in collaboration with auto companies. Simultaneously, the best trust research about battery technology. In a short time will be many electric cars on the roads. Then the infrastructure will be needed to charge them. There will be a bunch of opportunities, as these modifications will take place. The auto repair industry will have to prepare anew for electric cars.
Launching Electric Cars Commercially
The function of electric cars, and for that matter, any new technological creation is not conditional on the manufacturer by itself. The entire industry has to back the move and allow essential support for its success. The automobile industry is finally gearing up for a must support to the electric cars. A massive drop in the price of electric battery cars has been launched.
The 21 Century has numerous 100% electric and plug-in hybrid electric cars on the market. There are from BMW, Cadillac, Citroen, Fiat, Ford, Honda, Kia, Mercedez-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Oppel, Peugeot, Renault, Toyota, Volvo, Volkswagen.
However, it is not easy to find these types of cars in many locations. The product is buying up rather quickly after they launch new car lots. The good news is that plans are in the works for even more car manufacturers. They will make even more models of these new electric cars in the months and years to come.
More than five million electric cars were on roads by 2018 and the number will exponentially rise in the future. The electric vehicle is charging in about an hour having 200 miles a range. It is possible the new electric car’s success will gradually take their place as the most popular vehicles on the road.
