History of the electric vehicle

The Motors EV1. one of the cars due to the California Air Resources Board had a range of 160 mi (260 km) with batteries in 1999.

The history of the vehicle began in the mid-19th An electrical vehicle held the land speed record around 1900. The high low top speed and short range of vehicles. compared to later combustion vehicles, led to a worldwide in their use.

At the beginning of the Century, interest in electrical and alternative fuel vehicles has due to growing concern over the associated with hydrocarbon vehicles, including damage to the caused by their emissions. and the of the current hydrocarbon-based transportation


1830s to 1900s: history Edit

Electric model by Ányos Jedlik. the of an early type of electric (1828, Hungary).

Electricity is one of the automobile propulsion methods in use today; it predates the invention of and Benz’s Otto cycle by several decades.

The invention of the vehicle is attributed to various In 1828, Ányos Jedlik. a who invented an early type of motor. created a tiny car powered by his new motor. In 1834, blacksmith Thomas Davenport. the of the first American DC electrical installed his motor in a small car, which he operated on a circular electrified track. [1] In Professor Sibrandus Stratingh of the Netherlands and his assistant Christopher created a small-scale electrical powered by non-rechargeable primary [2] In 1838, Scotsman Robert built an electric locomotive attained a speed of 4 mph (6.4 [3] Between 1832 and 1839, Anderson of Scotland invented a electrical carriage. [4] A patent for the use of as conductors of electric current was in England in 1840, and similar were issued to Lilley and in the United States in 1847. [5] batteries that provided a means for storing electricity on a vehicle did not come into until the 1840s. citation

The invention of battery technology, including by Gaston Plante in France in [6] as well as his fellow countryman Faure in 1881, [7] paved the way for cars to flourish in Europe. An two-wheel cycle was put on display at the World Exposition in Paris by the inventor Franz Kravogl. [8] and Great Britain were the nations to support the widespread of electric vehicles. [4] The lack of fossil resources in Switzerland in the tiny European nation’s electrification of its railway network to its dependence on foreign energy. In 1881, French inventor Trouvé demonstrated a working automobile at the International Exhibition of in Paris. [9] English inventor Parker, who was responsible for innovations as electrifying the London Underground. tramways in Liverpool and Birmingham, and the fuel coalite. claimed to perfected a working electric car as as 1884. [10]

Electric trains were used to transport coal out of as their motors did not use up precious Before the pre-eminence of internal engines. electric automobiles held many speed and records. [11] Among the notable of these records was the of the 100 km/h (62 mph) speed by Camille Jenatzy on April 29, in his ‘rocket-shaped’ vehicle Jamais which reached a top speed of km/h (65.79 mph). notable was Ferdinand Porsche’s and construction of an all-wheel drive car, powered by a motor in hub, [12] which set several records in the hands of its E.W.


The rise of the electric in America Edit

Though Davenport was among the first to an electric motor into a an electric car in the conventional sense was not until 1890 or 1891, by Morrison of Des Moines. Iowa ; the was a six-passenger wagon capable of a speed of 14 miles per hour (23 It was not until 1895 that began to devote attention to vehicles, after A.L. introduced the first electric to the U.S. by that point, had been making use of electric bicycles, and cars for almost 15

Many innovations followed, and in motor vehicles increased in the late 1890s and early In 1897, electric vehicles their first commercial as a fleet of electrical New York taxis, built by the Electric and Wagon Company of Philadelphia, was Electric cars were in the U.S. by Anthony Electric, Columbia.

Due to technological limitations and the lack of electric technology, the top speed of early electric vehicles was to about 32 km/h (20 mph). their relatively slow electric vehicles had a number of over their early-1900s They did not have the vibration, and noise associated with cars.

Changing gears on cars was the most difficult of driving, and electric vehicles did not gear changes. While cars also had no gear they suffered from start-up times of up to 45 minutes on mornings. The steam cars had range before needing than an electric car’s on a single charge.

Electric found popularity among customers who used them as cars. where their range proved to be even of a disadvantage. The cars were preferred because they did not a manual effort to start, as did cars which featured a crank to start the engine. cars were often as suitable vehicles for women due to this ease of operation; in early electric cars stigmatized by the perception that were women’s cars, some companies to affix to the front to disguise the car’s system.

Acceptance of electric cars was hampered by a lack of power but by 1912, many homes wired for electricity, enabling a in the popularity of the cars. At the turn of the 40 percent of American automobiles powered by steam, 38 percent by and 22 percent by gasoline. 33,842 cars were registered in the States, and America became the where electric cars had the most acceptance. [14] basic electric cars under $1,000 (in 1900 roughly $26,000 today), early electric vehicles massive, ornate carriages for the upper-class customers that them popular.

They luxurious interiors, replete expensive materials, and averaged by 1900 (roughly $79,000 Sales of electric cars in 1912.

In order to overcome the operating range of electric and the lack of recharging infrastructure, a battery service was first as early as 1896. [15] The was first put into practice by Electric Light Company the GeVeCo battery service and available for electric trucks. The owner purchased the vehicle General Vehicle Company a subsidiary of the General Electric without a battery and the electricity was from Hartford Electric an exchangeable battery. The owner a variable per-mile charge and a service fee to cover maintenance and of the truck. Both vehicles and were modified to facilitate a battery exchange.

The service was provided between to 1924 and during that covered more than 6 miles. Beginning in 1917 a successful service was operated in for owners of Milburn Light cars who also could buy the without the batteries. [15]
