Wildman Aims to Build Electric Vehicle Museum
Historic Electric Vehicle Foundation has taken another big step toward its ultimate goal of building the world’s first International Electric Vehicle Museum.
The organization’s new website, hevf.org, provides a vast amount of information on electric vehicles, including this startling fact: At the beginning of the automotive age, electric power was the standard, with nearly twice as many electric cars registered as gasoline ones.
By the turn of the 19th century, there were more than 300 manufacturers of electric vehicles in the United States. Fifty years later they had largely disappeared, victims of the internal combustion engine.
The museum is an idea whose time has come, says Roderick Wilde, a Port Townsend resident who operates two businesses in Sequim.
