EVs have existed roughly in one form or another since the design of the car. Some of the early cars were powered by batteries and not by gas. EVs still outsold gasoline-powered vehicles in the early twentieth century. However, with improvements to gas engines and the availability of inexpensive fuel, electrical vehicles dropped out of favor. Throughout the twentieth century, different models of EVs were created, but none became widely embraced by consumers. But in recent years, the usage of EVs became unexpectedly high.
