The first electric carriage was invented in Scotland in the mid 1830s by Robert Anderson. The car used a non-rechargable electric battery. France and Great Britain were the first nations to support the widespread development of electric vehicles in the late 1800s. The Wood’s Phaeton was one of the earliest electric vehicles to be used widely – it had a range of 18 miles, a top speed of 14 mph and cost $2,000.
