The Electric Automobile in America

Book - 1994
Rate this:
Describes the early history of electric automobiles, 1895-1920, and how they vanished, not because of technological deficiencies but in a battle about money and gender. Women preferred the quieter, safer electric cars, but men wanted the roaring, speedy gas engines made by Henry Ford. Schiffer (anthropology and traditional technology, U. of Arizona) also reviews the current technology and prospects for a revival. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
