Electric vehicles, or EVs, have been around for over 100 years. The first EV that people could buy went on sale in 1894. The "Electrobat" could go 25 miles on one battery charge. Today's EVs are light, speedy, affordable, and can travel far on a single charge. Learn why modern EVs are enticing drivers to "dump the pump" and how EVs have evolved over time!
