The story of electromobility goes back as far as the early 19th century. In 1834 the American Thomas Davenport built the first electric car with a non-rechargeable battery. With a range of 15 to 30 kilometres.
Ну типа ТРОЛЛЕЙБУСА бегала хрень в 1834 году. Откуда был ЭЛ. ТОК в проводах ? От ЭЛЕКТРОГЕНЕРАТОРА Фарадея 1831 года ?
At the turn of the century (1893 to 1906), the firm of Charles Jeantaud from Paris produced the best French electric cars. In December 1898, one of these cars set a speed record of 37.7 km/h, and once again in 1899, reaching 42 km/h.
Road vehicle „La Jamais Contente” reaches a maximum speed of 100 km/h.
In 1899 a maximum speed of over 100 km/h was achieved for the first time. The Belgian engineer and racing driver Camille Jenatzy built what was then the fastest road vehicle, the „Jamais Contente”. The speed record was reached on 29 April 1899 near Paris.
The Lohner-Porsche, created by Ferdinand Porsche.
By 1900, there were about 75 factories in the USA producing 4,192 automobiles a year: 1,688 steam automobiles, 1,575 electric vehicles and 929 petrol vehicles.
At the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris, Ferdinand Porsche presented his creation, the Lohner-Porsche to the public. Porsche realised that the greatest advantage of electric propulsion lay in the fact that a gearbox, or any other mechanical elements were unnecessary for power transmission. The otherwise small range of the car also presented him with an intellectual challenge, so he functionally combined an electric motor with an internal combustion engine. The petrol engine supplied electricity for the battery via a generator, and the battery in turn fed the electric motor.
Так значит и Федя Паршивый был с электрической розеткой ...
In 1912 electromobility reached its peak for the time: around the world, 20 manufacturers produced almost 34,000 electric cars. The main disadvantage of the electric car at this time were the batteries; although they could in principle be charged at any electrical socket, there were unfortunately very few electrical sockets available.
