Skoda Enyaq IV And The History Of Czech Electric Vehicles

The Skoda Enyaq IV electric is now ready, and it is a vehicle that promises to be a real trendsetter in the market. It is a great bet of the Czech brand towards the electromobility. The Enyak IV is also taking part in the Tour de France. A few weeks ago the Skoda company spoke publicly about its history in the field of electric vehicles, showing photos of its first models. This is a good moment to increase this information and to talk about the previous and subsequent Czech electric vehicles, with some data full of surprise.
The first Czech electric car appeared in 1900. It was a model developed in Switzerland by Jacob Fischer, who wanted to manufacture it in Switzerland under the brand…

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: Speed Fights With Volts And Watts

Speed records with electric vehicles tumble every year, and even with volts and watts it is getting faster and faster. Although this data is not usable, as the record-breaking vehicles have little in common with today's electric production vehicles, the races nevertheless help to improve components, motors and batteries and ... above all, they also give the electric vehicle the flair of speed, the emotions that come from the gut, which we in the world of automobiles, especially when they are environmentally friendly now, always need. That was already the case before!
The first automobile to break through the dreaded speed of 100 km/h was an electric vehicle. And this already in 1899!…

The Eternal Cycle - Women Driving Electric Vehicles

In automotive history only the ladies who drove gasoline cars are ever mentioned, but there were also many female drivers of electric vehicles in the last decade of the 20th century. In the first years of the new century, numerous advertisements appeared showing women driving electric vehicles, elegantly dressed, stylishly in silent and easy-to-handle cars that drove off immediately, and did not need a crank to start them. And were also very clean.
Numerous were these ads in the social press of America. First and foremost in Harpers Magazine, McClure's (one of the first magazines that took care of well-researched journalism and reported social grievances and dubious deals of…

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…
