Performance (pick up, handling etc.) of electric cars is far superior to their gas counterparts.

After a long EV life, batteries can be reused in other applications such as energy and wind storage.
Electric Cars


Did you know....

Tesla Motor Company was started by two business men Marc Tarpenning and Martin Eberhard.  after predesigning the all electric car that was to become the Roadster, they looked for investors.  This is when Elon Musk became involved...
The first electric car was created in 1834 by Thomas Davenport.  However, some think that Robert Anderson of Scotland (between 1832 and 1839) invented the first EV.  None the less, they have been around since the 1830's! These prototypes used non-rechargable batteries. Electric vehicles would hold all vehicle land speed records until about 1900.
