Were the first invented cars electric?



First invented cars were electric, then what happened to them? Why did they cease to exist?

In 1900, 40% cars were electric, around 38% cars ran on steam and you will be surprised to know that only 22% cars were gasoline propelled.

As in 2017, we are rediscovering the possibilities and feasibility of electric cars, let’s have a look on the history of evolution of cars:

1832-1839 : An Scottish inventor “Robert Anderson” invented the first crude carriage which was propelled by non-chargeable primary cells.

1835: An American scientist “Thomas Davenport” built the first ever practical electric Locomotive.

1891: “William Morrison” built the first successful electric automobile in the America.

In the year 1897, first electric taxis hit the roads of New York, America.

But in 1908, “Henry Ford” introduced commercial gasoline powered Model T, and its mass production made a profound impact on the Automobile industry of United States of America.

During 1920, Gasoline was cheap and easily available. And the electric cars were lacking in horsepower and were not suitable for long distance travel. These factors were responsible for the downfall of electric cars and rise of Gasoline powered cars.

But today, as all prominent Auto manufacturers are aware of the scarcity of Gasoline and Gasoline being the Non- renewable energy resource. So they are now producing more successful electric cars.

When the petroleum was cheap and easily available, people rejected the electric cars but now the situation is reverse and the future belongs to Electric Cars.
