Check Out The Actual First Electric Car

Looking at the media today, you would think that the electric car is a new invention, but no! it seems not for this classic reproduction shows an electric car that was around in 1881, of yes!

This car is the work of Gustav Trouvé, a Frenchman who decided to fit a standard Coventry Tricycle with an electric engine for the Paris Electricity Trade Show in 1881 and clearly it worked and after some extensive rebuilding it still does!
