History of EV

In 1837, as technological developments led to the creation of electric motors and machines, the first electric vehicle was born.

Up until the creation of internal combustion engines, these EVs were very popular against their steam counterparts as they made less noise, less pollution, and were much nicer to drive in general.

Interest was not sparked again until the early 21st century, as climate change became a larger threat, and we had to find a way out of the dark ages of gasoline-powered vehicles.

With the emergence of companies such as Tesla, and the release of electric vehicles by the likes of Toyota, Renault, Volkswagen and BMW – the future of electric vehicles is looking very promising.
