hard to believe electric cars were invented before petrol/gasoline/diesel cars, but indeed that is the case. I still don't think it was a good idea rejecting it. But maybe at the time it might have worked out - there would have been an awful strain on the electric grid systems. But maybe that would have pushed innovation regarding the production of electricity? Or landed us with hydroelectric dams all over the world as a norm. Who knows? Either way, it's definitely time for them to rise. And hydrogen. But given water shortages, again. Who knows?
