    An EV from 1910

    So it seems EVs aren't such a new thing after all.
    The motor museum in Wynyard in Tasmania, where we are today, contains a beautiful example of a 1910 Waverley Coupe, with a 50 mile range.
    Remarkably, this car has NOT been restored, but is in beautiful original condition, and driven regularly at rallies.
    Just a lovely machine.

    Is it not common knowledge that electric cars were very common as the start of the car era? You guys need to study history more.

    Indeed, they were quite popular for a while until petrol became more widely available and the battery tech of the day didnít have a chance after that unfortunately.

    Those of you old enough to remember Walt Disney comic books would remember that Grandma Duck drove a Detroit Electric. Giltrap's museum on the Gold Coast had one.
