Electric cars: A Trojan horse?
(This book is currently sold out.)
Vincent van der Vinne’s paper on the history of the electric car in the Netherlands from 1896 to 1920, set in the social context of that time, resulted in a joint article on the same subject with Gijs Mom. The article was published in an historical journal in 1994. After that, the two wrote a book about electric cars. In this book, Vincent van der Vinne discusses the history of these vehicles, its distribution in two stages, the competitive relationship between the electric car and the horse, and the success and failure factors of electric cars.
