The first commercial use of an electric vehicle was seen in 1897 when brand new electric taxis took to the streets of New York.

A choice of colors was originally available, but from 1913 to 1925 the car was mass-produced in only one color-black.
Assembly-line production allowed price of the touring car version to be lowered from $850 in 1908 to less than $300 in 1925.
The original cost of the vehicle in 1885 was $1,000.
Benz officially unveiled his invention to the public on July 3, 1886.
