Electric cars

Electronic design posted an interesting article on the electric car. Here's an image of the Baker Electric, from the early 1900s. Wow.

  1. I highly recommend the documentary: "Who Killed The Electric Car?"
    "2006 documentary film that explores the creation, limited commercialization, and subsequent destruction of the battery electric vehicle in the United States, specifically the General Motors EV1 of the mid 1990s. The film explores the roles of automobile manufacturers, the oil industry, the US government, the Californian government, batteries, hydrogen vehicles, and consumers in limiting the development and adoption of this technology."
