Did you know that the first electric vehicle was developed exactly 190 years ago?
This achievement, dated 1832, is credited to Scottish inventor Robert Anderson. Although it was a very simple version, in the 1870s, electric cars became a popular topic with new inventors proposing numerous designs. The breakthrough was the invention of a lead-acid battery and commutator, which led to the development of the first DC electric car in 1871.
Even 7 years ago, we felt pioneers in this field, but the truth is that the history of electromobility is much longer and richer. Today we hope to create this latest story.
