Format: Hardcover
Electric cars are typically seen as a modern invention: in fact, they were among the first vehicles on the road: in the car's early days a third were electric, and they competed strongly with gas cars. In Electric And Hybrid Cars: A History, Judy and Curtis Anderson collaborate to provide the reader an illustrated history of electric and hybrid cars, surveying not only the history of their construction and promotion, but the political and social controversies which have surrounding their development and use.
