1905 EVs?
#1
From EMV's Facebook page...

"By 1900, electric cars were so popular that New York City had a fleet of electric taxis, and electric cars accounted for a third of all vehicles on the road. People liked them because in many ways early electric cars outperformed their gas competitors. Electric cars didn’t have the smell, noise, or vibration found in steam or gasoline cars. They were easier to operate, lacked a manual crank to start, and didn’t require the same difficult-to-change gear system as gas cars." https://www.curbed.com/…/1634…/electric-car-history-fritchle

Electric cars might seem like the vehicles of the future, but they are actually a status symbol of the past.
