Automakers Tinkering the Electric Cars; Story Continues

Electric Cars have been at the center of innovation for about a century now and the automakers are tinkering it even today. At the dawn of the automotive era, three colossal automakers were battling for supremacy to drive automobiles. The three prospective elements included gasoline, Electricity, and steam, but all three had major setbacks. Gasoline was expensive, hard to find, and dangerous to handle. Worse, cars with gasoline engines had to be hand-cranked, a risky, potentially bone-breaking activity.

Electric Cars generally use batteries to store energy, which is later on fed to a motor that drives the wheels. Steam-powered vehicles that outsold gasoline-powered cars from 1889 to 1905 were slow to fire up and get rolling. Why they got up slow running is the question for the developers to answer. They took up the assistance of an engineer to operate the levers, pumps, handles, and pressure valves.

While the internal combustion engine became the preferred way to drive the wheels, small motors eventually would be used to operate windshield wipers, heater fans, and radiator fans; raise and lower windows and power a dozen features came along with electric cars. The power Motors that drove the EVs did not vanish away from the automobiles. Precisely, it saw a demotion which was a disheartening moment for the automakers.

The automakers then planned out a revolutionary change in the motors and sought to return the electric motors to their preliminary mission, driving the wheels. The long-term tinkering didn’t help the motors and eventually, it had to return to the basics. After World War II, when battery technology improved, automakers again began tinkering. Now after a century of Electric Cars running through thick and thin, the era seems to have finally arrived and the automakers resort back to EVs.
