Here's an excerpt from the book The Gasoline Automobile, by Ben G. Elliott and Earl L. Consoliver, which was published in 1922. It really shows how far electric cars have come in the past hundred years "The disadvantages are that it is not suitable for long drive, heavy loads, or hilly country. On one charge of the battery the average car will run from 100 to 150 miles, depending on the speed of the car and the conditions of the roads. If the car is run at high speed, the battery will not drive the car as far as it will when running at a moderate rate. This car is also limited to localities where there are ample facilities for charging the storage batteries." So basically the only change to electric cars from the 20's is that they now have air conditioning
