History of Electric Cars from 1834 - 1987
ELECTRIC VEHICLE COMPANIES SINCE 1834
Compiled by Frank Didik   C1997

The following list of of electric vehicle manufacturers was compiled over the past 15 years from a variety of sources including the archives of the Electric Car Owners Club, early magazine advertisements, personal knowledge and other sources. This directory is by no means complete and additional vehicles manufacturers continue to be added as they are found. This list represents some of the information that is included in my electric car book and CD-ROM. The book and CD-ROM includes details about each vehicle including photographs or drawings of most of the vehicles.
