In the daily increase of price on a petroleum causing a problem for middle standard people with wages just enough for the food and basic supply need, which tend to increase more further in the near future, making even more harder in the future ,which eventually increase the demand for Electric car and some near future it will be ruling the roadways , in the present suitation the demand for electric car is rising abruptly.
Everyone knew about the Tesla company who has been manufacturing electric vehicles. But they were not the first company to manufacture electric car. Let’s dive in the history of electric car which will take back us to 19th century. Where all it begins.
The invention of the first modal electric vehicle is attributed to various people. In 1828 Anyos Jedlik invented an early type of electric motor and created a small modal car powered by his new motor. Between 1832 to 1839, Scottish inventor Robert Anderson also invented a crude electric carriage. In 1835 professor Sibrandus stratingh Germany also created a small scale electric car, powered by non-rechargeable primary cells.
It took 20+ more years for to come the first practical electric car which was a rechargeable batteries that provide a mean transport on electric power by storing the electricity within it. until 1859 the invention of lead acid battery which provide a new way for the electric car, and in 1881 French scientist improve the capacity of battery and leading directly to the industrial scale.In 1880 Trouve improved the electric motor.
The first electric car was tested along a Paris street known as Rue Valois in 19April 1881
Like now every person who are living in the city, town and village are facing problem of air pollution and sound pollution which leading us to hospital bed, what till now is improved in petroleum consuming car is that it have increase it efficiency abrudly and also reducing the emission of carbon dioxide but in 19th century, fuel car use to release a huge amount of carbon dioxide with a black cloud and it use to get worse in the city because due to present of vast amount of gasoline car the city seems always to be covered with the black fog. And also, it gives a very unpleasant smell, along with massive vibration and of course the sound with lots of gear change in every roots where as in electric car it was silent, no vibration, smell and it has no gear change. And also, they did not require a manual effort to start, as did gasoline cars which featured a hand crank to start the engine.
When electric battery powered taxis available in the 19th century. In London Walter Bersey designed a fleet of such cab which later was given a nickname of “HUMMINGBIRDS” due the sound it created was similar to the humming bird.
Electric cars found popularity among well-heeled customers who used them as city car, where their limited range proved to be even less of a disadvantage. Electric cars were often marketed as suitable vehicles for women drivers due to their ease of operation; in fact, early electric cars were stigmatized by the perception that they were “women’s cars”, leading some companies to affix radiators to the front to disguise the car’s propulsion system.
Initially Electric car was not accepted by the people because of lack of power and the range it gives was very less than the gasoline car. In the US by the turn of century 40 percentage were steam power and 38 percentage were electric power and 22 percentage were gasoline. Lack of power which dry out very fast and the less range that electric car provide was the major problem for the company. o overcome the limited operating range of electric vehicles, and the lack of recharging infrastructure, an exchangeable battery service was first proposed as early as 1896. The concept was first put into practice by Hartford Electric Light Company through the GeVeCo battery service and initially available for electric trucks. The vehicle owner purchased the vehicle from General Vehicle Company (GVC, a subsidiary of the General Electric Company) without a battery and the electricity was purchased from Hartford Electric through an exchangeable battery. The owner paid a variable per-mile charge and a monthly service fee to cover the maintenance and storage of the truck. Both vehicles and batteries were modified to facilitate a fast battery exchange. The service was provided between 1910 and 1924 and during that period covered more than 6 million miles. Beginning in 1917 a similar successful service was operated in Chicago for owners of Milburn Wagon Company cars who also could buy the vehicle without the batteries.
In pre-world war 1 era ten company in New York banded together to form New York Electric Vehicle Association. After enjoying success at the beginning of the 20th century, the electric car began to lose its position in the automobile market. Gasoline car also overcome much of their negative compared to electric Over the next 30 years, electric vehicles saw little advancement. Cheap, abundant gasoline and continued improvements to the internal combustion engine hampered demand for alternative fuel vehicles.
In 1959 American Motors Corporation and Sonotone corporation announced a joint research effort and producing an electric car powered by self-charging battery. That same year, Nu-Way Industries showed an experimental electric car with a one-piece plastic body that was to begin production in early 1960.
In the mid 1960 few electric car concept appeared. Most of them doesn’t went to industrial production only the prototype was built. But electric car has played many vital role on many thing one of this is on 31 July 1971 an electric car received the unique distinction of becoming the first manned vehicle to drive on the moon surface known as lunar roving vehicle .

After years outside the limelight, the energy crises of the 1970s and 1980s brought about renewed interest in the perceived independence electric cars had from the fluctuations of the hydrocarbon energy market. However, vehicles such as the intensely-marketed Sinclair C5 failed, possibly because “global warming hadn’t been invented
In early 1990s the CARB the government of California begin to push for more fuel-efficient ,lower-emissions vehicles, with the ultimate goal being a move to zero-emission vehicles, such as electric car.
Throughout the 1990s, interest in fuel-efficient or environmentally friendly cars declined among consumers in the United States, who instead favored sport vehicles , which were affordable to operate despite their poor fuel efficiency thanks to lower gasoline prices. Domestic U.S. automakers chose to focus their product lines around the truck-based vehicles, which enjoyed larger profit margins than the smaller cars which were preferred in places like Europe or Japan.
With a continued increase in the adoption of electric vehicles across the world, charging infrastructure has become a pressing issue. Without sufficient and compatible facilities to charge EVs, there’s simply no way to sell citizens on the benefits of electric driving.
By 2009, Estonia was the world’s first country with a nationwide EV fast charging network.
Over the next three years, Western Europe, Japan, China, and the U.S. deployed around 50,000 public EV charging stations. By 2014, the EU issued a Directive ensuring a minimum coverage of charging infrastructure across member states.
Our founders Bram and Huub anticipated the growing need for charging infrastructure. In 2010, EVBox was born.
EVBox’s partnership with Nuon-Heijmans in 2016 will help its home country, The Netherlands, expand its charging infrastructure in major cities; Amsterdam being the first. By 2025, the Dutch capital may very well become Europe’s first zero emission city.
The future is looking bright for e-mobility.
Our dependence on oil is continuously and critically being challenged by the growing adoption of renewable and self-generated energy, as well growing interest from climate change and oil dependence, we’re also seeing that it’s simply easier and more efficient to design , engineer, and build electric cars
With electric cars becoming part of our everyday commute, the implementation and optimization of charging infrastructure will face new challenges. Energy-efficient Smart Charging, self-charging and durable car batteries, high-tech charging roadways, self-sufficient charging stations that save and transmit energy between home and car… The opportunities reach far beyond what we’ve accomplished today.
