The first successful electric car in the U.S. made its debut in 1890. By 1900 electric cars were so popular that New York City had a fleet of electric taxis. More than a century later, electric cars are coming to the world in big numbers.
By 2024 electric cars will become cheaper and more popular than gasoline-powered cars. The design of electric cars will affect car manufacturers, car dealers, car repair shops, gas stations, and used car dealers.
