    We read a facinating book on this topic the other day-- we could not put it down (see title below). It talks about how EV cars were used in New York City btw. 1896 to approx. 1910 as taxi. Battery packs were good for about 4 hours of travel and could travel over 100 miles per charge. when the charge was gone, they went to a service station that replaced the battery with a fully charged one.

    The book title is Electric and Hybrid Cars: A History

    Authors: Judy Anderson & Curtis D. Anderson

    Year: 2005
