The Visitor: Trucks For Cape Juby In Morocco

Under the name of "The Visitor" I will occasionally publish reports on the history of the automobile and commercial vehicle that are not related to the topic of electric vehicles. We start today with "Trucks for Cape Juby in Morocco", which I hope you will like.

The Eternal Cycle: Electric Taxis, Then And Now

As early as 1896, electric taxis were humming through the streets of London, the hummingbirds, as they were affectionately called by the inhabitants, did not smoke and did not leave dung on the asphalt. And they were also quiet.
The drivers could pay some dividends to the London Electric Cab Company, owner of most of these taxis. The basic model was from Bersey, with an American Lundell engine, and a patented battery changing system - the batteries slid out in their box with small wheels and a new box with fresh units slid back in. The E.P.S. lead batteries with 170 ampere hours lasted up to 80 kilometres. Of course there were problems, where not, and later gasoline-powered taxis were…
