In 1897, electric cars first found commercial use as taxis in Britain and in the United States. In London, Walter Bersey‘s electric cabs were the first self-propelled vehicles for hire at a time when cabs were horse-drawn.

The electric vehicle fleet peaked at approximately 30,000 vehicles at the turn of the 20th century  including the iconic British milk float.  For most of the 20th century, the UK was the world’s largest user of electric road vehicles.
