This speed is approximately the speed at which you walk. That's why those véhicules weren't really used. It was just prototypes and inferiors were trying to improve it's performances.
In fact this type of véhicule have really been used during a couple of decades around the 1830's
In the first half of the 19th century, it was the birth of electric véhicules. When some prototypes were made in 1830. It started to be sold to the public around 1865 when batteries were big enough to really use these cars.
EV by Thomas Parker - 1895
Look how glorious this Mr. Parker is looking in his wonderful electric car.
We'll have to wait 1886 to see the first fuel engine working in a car. This isn't really a car because that one made by Carl Benz is also a tricycle powered by a motor mounted on it.
The reliability, the longevity and the low price of the car made it really interesting and it became the car the most sold ever in 1972.
Due to a lack of fundings, EV totally disappeared around 1955. After that, we know the story, today. The cars are really powerful today and the fuel represent more than 85% of the world market shares.
Since less than 20 years, a lot of brands credited to recreate electric véhicules. For now, those cars are still really expensive.
We can cite Tesla, which first was productions extremely expensive cars. Really safe and with a lot of features but this was luxury cars.
And you probably know that they try to touch more people with their car with their last Model 3.
This cas, which is still expensive, is closer to the price of other EV. The cheapest configuration of this car is around $46,000. In France the most sold car is the Renault Zoe which costs 32,000€ for the cheapest configuration while the government gives money to buy an electric car and makes the model 3 at $37,000...
I don't want to say that the model 3 is better but it has A LOT of features more than the Renault Zoe. If you want to know more about it, you can search on Youtube there are a lot of videos.
This year is really important because we see that EV are really becoming more and more seductive.
While the global car market is falling (just a little, due to the lockdowns around the world which discourage people to buy new cars), the EV market is really getting way bigger, around 34% more than previous year. And it will probably continue to increase.
