Electric Cars Are Nothing New
Cars that run on electricity were developing right up until gasoline-powered engines were developed, Gaetano “Guy” Mannino told the Seven Hills Rotary Club on Tuesday.
The first electric car race was in 1896, Mannino said. In 1899, an electric car set land-speed record at 62 miles per hour.
But after gasoline, electric car development stopped until 1974 and the beginning of a cycle of gasoline shortages and rising prices, according to Mannino.
