Just for fun.... Bloomberg has produced a wonderful photo-essay chronology of the evolution of electric-powered vehicles. Lots of great photographs, animations, etc. In 1900, electric cars accounted for about one-third of all vehicles on the road -- and then almost disappeared from the landscape as gasoline-engine models took over. Decades later, technological advances and concerns about the environment spurred their gradual revival, which isn’t so gradual anymore: By 2040, more than half of all new cars will be powered only by batteries, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance estimates.
