The History of Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles have come a long way since they were first developed in the 19th century. The first American electric vehicle was invented by William Morrison of Des Moines, Iowa, and it reached a not-so-speedy top speed of 14 miles per hour. Today, electric vehicles are becoming known for their quick acceleration and their long list of additional benefits. Electric vehicles were reintroduced in 2010 in the United States, and there are over 450,000 currently on our roads.
