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.
