Imagine an electric car and a steam engine generator, please do not compare to gasoline, 120 mile distances?

The questions are: What can we do? Where can we find these documented attempts of others. Can we find out if these ideas were ever attempted? Has anyone done any research or have some positive information? Who could we ask or notify, to get these answers?
