The world's first electric car... built by a British inventor in 1884
The world's first electric car may have been built by a Victorian inventor.
Newly unearthed photos show what appears to be an electric vehicle built in the year 1884.
To the modern eye the machine looks like a horseless carriage, but sitting aboard at the wheel is the 19th century inventor Thomas Parker.
