Never really put it together what a large number of different electric vehicles there are before that quiz.

BTW, I just picked up "build your own Electric Vehicle" from the library, and they had "The complete book of Electric Vehicles" there, published in 1981, I'm sure lots of people here would love to thumb through it, just a dizzying array of vehicles in there.

Heres a thread with some pics of the 512 that is in the book

And it's not even close to being exhaustive.

There are a pile more NEVs available, and I left out more highway capable vehicles, like: Chrysler TEVan, Lectric Lepoard, GM S10 EV, Nissan had a car in California for the ZEV mandate (forget what it was called), several OEM vehicles sold in Europe...

I got 17 out of 22.
I was hoping to do better as I've seen at least 4 or 5 of them in person.

Dangit! Screwed up the Ford Ranger EV! I knew exactly what it was but picked the wrong one anyway. Got 18 out of 22 with that wrong choice, shoulda gotten 19 out of 22.

YES! (Delayed response). As a matter of fact, I just finished adding another one, this one tests your recognition abilities for hybrid cars:

I can see my interest for fossil fuel cars went right out the window! Electrics and/or 3-wheelers are on my mind too much (if that is possible)!

The EMC3 is gas powered, but such a "perfect" design with "perfect" accessories I love that 3-wheeler.

Great test; but I am starting to wonder if a three E exists like the three A!

I was unfamiliar with about half of these vehicles, but I managed a 68%.

I was really hoping to see the Forkenswift.

Bonus points to anyone who can identify this hybrid:
