We are led to believe from the media that electric cars are a new idea and that they are our future. Governments see this as the only means of propulsion necessary in a few years time and will help meet their targets of lower CO2 emissions to save the planet. They benefit from zero emissions, this of course depends how the electricity was generated, but are more efficient than internal combustion engines. It is an interesting fact that in 1907 half of the cars in New York were electric. The early pioneers realised that electric cars were cleaner, easier to use, more reliable, quieter, smoother and easier to drive. The downside of electro vehicles has always been the low energy density of batteries compared with fossil fuel. Fortunately this has been addressed with Lithium Ion batteries being able to store and deliver much larger reserves of power than ever before making electric vehicles a practical alternative to fossil fuel powered cars.
