Restored Edison Electric car from 1889. Charles writes…

Hello again! I looked up from my computer today to take a look at the history of one of the major projects we are working on at Global Research– electrification of the world.   Here is what I found.  What is really interesting is that I believe this video was filmed when the car was being driven to our Global Research campus for the 2008 Battery Symposium that we hosted. It is a video of a restored Edison Electric car, located in our hometown of Schenectady, NY at the Edison Exploratorium. It had a 26 volt GE Automobile Motor Patent 1889.

It’s 121 years later.
