Introduction & Scope


Electric vehicles (EVs) have been a commercial reality for more than 100 years. This report author’s grandfather owned a thriving business that provided Exide lead-acid
battery packs to 1920s EV users. Shortly thereafter, inexpensive gasoline and an ever-increasing desire for performance ended widespread EV use. Oil shortages and an
increased concern for the environment began to revive the industry in the 1970s, but wide adoption of various types of EVs always seemed just beyond the horizon—as soon
as gasoline cost more than $1 a gallon, or $2, or $4; or as soon as batteries improved to the point at which they could power a car for 40 miles; or as soon as batteries could
be recharged in less than six hours.

All these technological and market forces were resolved or exceeded, and during the first five years of the 21st century, the lead-acid battery-powered EV market began a
slow, steady period of growth. The second five years saw widespread use of nickel hydride battery-powered hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), the commercial production of
pure battery-powered EVs in many niche markets, very wide adoption of (usually) lead-acid battery-powered scooters, and commercial-scale demonstrations of fuel cell
