Thomas Davenport, built a electric cars. Americans, Ryker and William Morrison built a 6 passenger electric car. In 1897 taxi's in New York city were electric cars.

When Henry Ford made the model T, was the last good moment for the electric car for 6 and a half decades. In 1920 car owners were into the gasoline car, gas was selling cheap and roads were available to drive on.

The first electric car in the United States was created by William Morrison and could reach a then-pretty-impressive 14 miles per hour. Electric cars, however, still remained more popular in Europe than in the US.

Around 1900, a fleet of electric taxi cabs took to the streets in London, but the first gasoline/electric hybrid was built near Chicago. That vehicle, however, was not a commercial success because it was too expensive, it was too slow, and it was a challenge to maintain.

By the 1920s, electric cars had lost ground to their rivals, as gas-powered vehicles could cover greater distances. And the main reason gas-powered cars gained popularity over electric cars was price. Production techniques made it possible to buy a gasoline-powered car at half the cost of an electric car.

Fuel shortages during World War II increased interest again in electric cars, but those efforts were short-lived. It wasn’t until the 1970s that another shortage fueled interest in electric cars. Finally, in the 1990s major auto manufacturers began to offer mainstream electric and hybrid options.
