How did cars evolve?
If you imagined the world’s first car, what map would come to your mind? Maybe a car made of tree branches, with wheels made of stone? Or a very thin buggy. There is a significant distance between the early cars and today’s cars, but if you look closely, most things are the same.
Early steam and electric vehicles
You may be surprised to learn that the concept of electric vehicles is not new, but the fact that early vehicles used to run on steam and electricity. These vehicles were used in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
The first vehicles were powered by steam. Initially, however, this source of energy was used for years only to run trains. Steam engines for small cars were made in the 1870s. But steam-powered small cars took a long time to start and could not go very far.
