Learn about the development of the Electric Car with iMinds insightful knowledge series. Imagine never having to go to the service station to fill up your car. And imagine owning a car that doesn't pollute the planet. Such notions may seem fanciful, but to eco-conscious manufacturers they are goals to strive for! Electric vehicles, or EVs, are those which are powered by an electric motor that receives its current either from rechargeable storage batteries or other sources of electrical energy. The car you drive today is most likely powered by gasoline which fills your car's internal-combustion engine. The gasoline your car uses pollutes the atmosphere and is said to speed up global warming. So, those who wish for a more environmentally-friendly mode of transport have championed the development of the electric car. But electric cars are by no means a modern invention. EVs have actually been around since the early 20th century. They were attractive to early car buyers as they didn't require manual effort to start them. And they didn't require any gear change either. As a result, 100 years ago electric cars were, in fact, more popular than gasoline ones. iMinds brings targeted knowledge to your eReading device with short information segments to whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.
