Wisconsin Electric Car Pioneer Ben Nelson Explains New Models to Milwaukee Hybrid Group: "Henry Ford had a deal to mass-produce electric cars with batteries supplied by Thomas Edison, according to home-grown electric car builder Ben Nelson. The package was going to include windmill systems to recharge the batteries, which would have meant no fuel costs at all. Edison was slow getting his end of the technology together, so Ford went with a petroleum-powered internal combustion engine instead."
