Electric Cars

In 1914, Henry Ford, when interviewed about his plans to work with Edison to build electric cars, told the New York Times: “the problem so far has been to build a storage battery of light weight which would operate for long distances without recharging.”

Today, nearly a hundred years later, the problem with electric cars is building a storage battery of light weight which would operate for long distances without recharging.

No matter how much people may hype them, no electric car is going to be viable for the majority of drivers until that happens.
