Source: website Petersen Automotive Museum | Electric Revolutionaries celebrates a dozen pioneers in the electric vehicle (EV) scene, with an emphasis on designers working with two wheels. Human mobility is undergoing a massive shift today. With an electrical supply infrastructure already in place, a revolution in battery technology in the 1990s, and 150 years of research into the uses and control of electricity, most designers and manufacturers are betting on the future of EVs. Despite billion-dollar investments into proposed EV automotive manufacture, the percentage of EV’s on the road is still small.
Each of these electric revolutionaries brings a unique contribution to the emerging EV space, from Ghanain teenager Samuel Aboagye repurposing scrap into vehicles, to artists and professional designers working to invent a new EV aesthetic, to racers proving the superior power of EV’s.
