The electric vehicle has been around for far longer than most realize. I’m not saying those old EVs are actually any good. But there were EV attempts being made. In this picture, we can see just that and it’s super cool.
It seems so primitive now but this type of engineering required people to think way outside the box. I think that’s what intrigues me the most about it, how it’s so farfetched of a concept but probably was an important stepping stone in finding the solution. It’s also weird to think about how some of our modern technology will be looked at the same way in 50 years. It’s hard to comprehend but fun to consider.
Ford was ahead of the hybrid trend long ago. Here is an prototype electric Mk2 Escort Popular +/-. In this image, it can be seen charging as it drives, courtesy of a Cortina Estate with a boot full of alternators pic.twitter.com/sN0Kr3xkJN
