Truth !!
Practical electric vehicles appeared during the 1890s.
By 1900, electric cars were so popular that New York City had a fleet of electric taxis.
An electric vehicle held the vehicular land speed record until around 1900.
In the 20th century, the high cost, low top speed, and short-range of battery electric vehicles, compared to internal combustion engine vehicles, led to a worldwide decline in their use as private motor vehicles.
