Electric Vehicles Outsold Gasoline Cars – in the 1900s!

Electric Vehicles Outsold Gasoline Cars – in the 1900s!

Not too many people realized that electric cars once outsold gasoline cars in America in 1900. In fact, electric vehicles (EVs) developed then were seen as better performers than gasoline-based cars because they didn’t have the vibration, smell, and noise associated with their gasoline counterpart. Now EVs are considered a niche and Americans’ gas combustion cars consumed about 400 million gallons of gasoline per day in 2006.    Kurt Kwok vice president of corporate marketing at Applied Materials on an electric motorcycle that is sold in certain Best Buy stores in the US.
