Thirty years ahead of its time?
Thirty years ahead of its time?
With the wave of interest in electrically-propelled private cars, people tend to forget that these have been around for a very long time - some say longer than the internal combustion-engined car. This picture, taken as long ago as 1977, shows an electric car being demonstrated to an interested group of female students, some of whom later were able to drive it for a short distance.
