Man has been trying to create a "electric vehicle" for almost 200 yrs now and look how far we've come.....about as far as a 2012 Leaf can go on a single charge and about as far as a Volt before the good old ICE (internal combustion engine) kicks in.
Obama's "green technologies" crowd want us all to believe that this is moving humanity "forward". But,as anybody can plainly see the regressive Green Mafia under the leadership of one of the most inept presidents of modern times is clearly taking us backwards into a past of No "Fracking",No plastic products produced with oil,No electricity produced by coal,No dams producing electricty,No nuclear power plants.
Solar will never do it,wind will never fulfill the needs of an advanced society. Obama seems to believe this Green Tech bubble will never burst,but it already has...........all FAILING!!
Even if a Company produces an EV that will allow 400 to 500 miles per charge and averaged 65-75 mph on the freeway and in most every way competes with a real ICE car,there will not be an adequate electrical infrastructure to supply the power for a national implementation of an EV dominated society. Thanks to Obama and the Green Mafia,this part of the EV equation has been sabotaged,yes they've shot themselves right in the foot. And Fucked the rest of their agenda.
Obama and his Green Mafia(Democrats) are the REAL party of NO,NO,NO!!
Who invented the very first EV is uncertain and several inventors have been given credit. In 1828, Hungarian, Ányos Jedlik invented a small-scale model car powered by an electric motor that he designed. Between 1832 and 1839 (the exact year is uncertain), Robert Anderson of Scotland invented a crude electric-powered carriage. In 1835, another small-scale electric car was designed by Professor Stratingh of Groningen, Holland, and built by his assistant Christopher Becker. In 1835, Thomas Davenport, a blacksmith from Brandon, Vermont, built a small-scale electric car. Davenport was also the inventor of the first of the first American-built DC electric motor. Better Batteries
More practical and more successful electric road vehicles were invented by both Thomas Davenport and Scotsmen Robert Davidson around 1842. Both inventors were the first to use the newly invented but non-rechargeable electric cells or batteries. Frenchmen Gaston Plante invented a better storage battery in 1865 and his fellow countrymen Camille Faure further improved the storage battery in 1881. Better capacity storage batteries were needed for electric vehicles to become practical. American Designs
In the late 1800s, France and Great Britain were the first nations to support the widespread development of electric vehicles. In 1899, a Belgian built electric racing car called "La Jamais Contente" set a world record for land speed - 68 mph - designed by Camille Jénatzy. It was not until 1895 that Americans began to devote attention to electric vehicles after an electric tricycle was built by A. L. Ryker and William Morrison built a six-passenger wagon both in 1891. Many innovations followed and interest in motor vehicles increased greatly in the late 1890s and early 1900s. In fact, William Morrison's design with a capacity for passenger is often considered the first real and practical EV.
In 1897, the first commercial EV application was established as a fleet of New York City taxis built by the Electric Carriage and Wagon Company of Philadelphia.
The story continues....
