We recently opened the world’s first International Electric Vehicle Museum
in Kingman Arizona. The “Route 66 Electric Vehicle Museum” was opened to coincide with the Route 66 International Festival in August.
The opening was on Friday, August 15th in the historic Powerhouse building. In the first three days we had visitors from 28 U.S. states and 20 countries making it a truly international event. Click here for further information and photos from the opening.

We have initiated the raffle of a horseless carriage to raise funds for our Route 66 Electric Vehicle Museum. Earlier this year an electric powered horseless carriage was donated to our foundation. As it did not fit our criteria to be included in our Route 66 Electric Vehicle Museum collection we decided to raffle it off. All funds raised go to the museum. We have no salaried employees. We are all volunteers. Check out our HEVF Horeless Carriage Raffle.
NOTE: We will be adding content daily to this site so check back often.
The Historic Electric Vehicle Foundation is a Washington State registered non profit corporation. The Foundation exists for the prime purpose of education concerning the history of electric vehicles from the nineteenth century up to and beyond the twenty first century as well as preserving examples of these vehicles for all the peoples of the world to enjoy and learn from. We intend to build the world’s first International Electric Vehicle Museum and collect vehicles from around the world for display. The collection will contain very rare early electric vehicles for transportation as well as delivery vehicles for commerce. There will be wings dedicated to vehicles such as electric motorcycles, micro cars and performance electric vehicles. We wish to tell the whole story of electric vehicles.
