Here's a look at some of the world's weirdest electric vehicles of all time (via Tobias Smith on Youtube).  Question is: aside from the GM EV1, would you drive one of these?

Vehicles in the video include:

  • "Electric Egg," 1942
  • Henney Kilowatt, 1960
  • Citicar, 1976
  • NASA Electric Car, 1977
  • Dodge Electrica, 1980
  • Corbin Sparrow, 2001 Ecooter Electric Car Scooter
  • Exide Battery Sundancer, 1973
  • GM's EV1, 1990
  • Handmade Electric Car In Ukraine
  • KAZ Eliica 8 Wheel Electric Car
  • Legrand Electric Car, 1970
  • Electric Shopper, 1960
  • Sinclair C5 Electric Vehicle, 1985
  • Tang Hua Chinese Electric Vehicle
  • The Enfield 8000, 1966
  • UnoCycle Electric Gyroscopic Bike
Isn't it now obvious why electric vehicles developed a bad reputation in the early days?
