Oldest electric car?

What's ironic is that you can tour Thomas Edison's house in New Jersey, including his garage where there are 3 or 4 electric cars AND CHARGING stations. I took a bunch of pics of the cars and storyboards -- I'll try to dig them up and post them later today.

Considering the Current Wars with Nikola Tesla and the advent of the Tesla EVs, it's all very surreal to think Edison had several EVs.
In June I snapped this pic at the Science Museum in London of an 1897 Bersey Taxi owned back then by the London Electrical Cab Company. At their peak there was a fleet of 75 of these driving around London.


Also found this video about it:

BTW, if you're ever in London almost all of the museums and art galleries are free of charge to enter; just leave a voluntary donation if you enjoy your visit.
