These days we think of electric vehicles as futuristic inventions,  coming our way just a little before commercial flights to the moon. But  actually, they preceded the infernal combustion engine by more than half  a century. Now, as we choke on the exhaust, we turn once more to  electricity. Only this time, the momentum is building not in Detroit but  in Shanghai, Hong Kong, and California.
