The best electric cars of 2019 are recognized: Hyundai Kona Electric, BMW i3, Renault Zoe, Nissan Leaf E-Plus, Volkswagen e-Golf

An electric car is a car driven not by an internal combustion engine, but by an electric motor that is powered by an independent source of electricity.

Nowadays, there is a widespread belief that an electric car is a product of technological progress of the 21st century. In fact, the opinion is correct, but not very fair with respect to the designers of the past and the century before last. After all, an electric car was created before the appearance of an internal combustion engine. Today, few people know the name of the inventor of Agios Jedlik, namely, in 1828 he made a moving electric trolley. His invention gave the idea to other engineers to work in this direction. And as a result, in 1841, the first electric car was designed in the form of a trolley with an electric motor.

The concept of creating an electric car began to be implemented in many countries. In 1899, in Russia engineer and inventor Ippolit Romanov created the first Russian electric omnibus with 17 passengers. In the same year, the Belgian Camille Zhenatzi designed an electric car with a bullet-like body, which developed a speed of up to 100 km per hour.

At the dawn of the automotive industry, the range and speed of electric and gasoline cars were the same. But the electric car had a complex battery recharging system, for the reason that in those years there were no AC to DC converters. Therefore, cars on the internal combustion engine replaced the electric car for more than a hundred years.

Nowadays, an electric car takes revenge for this defeat, and in this new confrontation a confident victory of cars on electric energy is predicted.

Today, many automotive companies produce electric cars, the leaders are such world brands as Tesla, Hyundai Renault, BMW, Mitsubishi, Volkswagen, Nissan. In 2019, the American Tesla sold the most electric cars in the global world market, accounting for 17% of the total market.

The best electric cars of 2019 are recognized cars: Hyundai Kona Electric, BMW i3, Renault Zoe, NissanLeaf E-Plus, Volkswagen e-Golf.

Presumably, historical justice will prevail, and in the near future an electric car will supplant the car on the internal combustion engine.
