Timeline: History of the Electric Car

Scottish inventor Robert Anderson invents the first crude electric carriage powered by non-rechargeable primary cells.

Are electric cars fast or slow compared to petrol and diesel?

To use a phrase beloved of the BBC Top Gear broadcast, until fairly recently electric vehicle performance could be described as 'a little bit rubbish'. When the best the market had to offer was cars like the REVA G-Wiz and various other quadricycle-based micro-electrics, acceleration and top speed were only suitable for city driving. These cars were chosen by people who wanted or needed an electric car, not because they were good to drive.

Making an electric car is a mechanical engineering challenge often used as a competition for students from 5th grade to 8th grade.
