At Permian Basin Transmission, Inc in Odessa, TX, we like to provide good, helpful information about caring for and maintaining the transmission in your car, truck, or SUV. Even still, here’s an unrelated but interesting article about the history of electric cars.

When you think electric car, a Tesla is most likely the first thing that comes to mind. A lot of buzz has been generated about the future of electric cars in recent years. However, the first production, rechargeable electric car actually rolled off the line in 1888, a full 20 years before the Model T hit the scene.

Back in the day, electric cars made a lot of sense - they were quiet, more powerful, and at the time negated the need for a transmission (which we don’t support at all.) They made so much sense, in fact, that thirty thousand of them were on the market by 1900. It really wasn’t until the electric starter was invented in 1912 that gas engines solidified their place in the world and were guaranteed to define the next 100 years of automotive history.

In another, slightly different world, we might all be driving electric cars right now. However, while we don’t yet know what the future holds, we do know it’s important to maintain your transmission today, no matter what you drive.

No matter your repair or maintenance needs, we’ve got you covered. For the best transmission service shop in Odessa, TX, call or stop by Permian Basin Transmission, Inc today.
