1931 The Vertex magneto was introduced. 30 pm. 1934 Citroën pioneered front-wheel drive in their 7CV model. 1934 The two-brush dynamo and compensated voltage control unit was first fitted. 1936 An electric speedometer was used that consisted of an AC generator and voltmeter. 1936 Positive earth was introduced to prolong spark-plug life and reduce battery corrosion. 1937 Coloured wires were used for the first time. 1938 Germany produced the Volkswagen Beetle. 1939 Automatic advance was fitted to ignition distributors.

The three electrical effects are reversible. Heat applied to a thermocouple will cause a small electromotive force and therefore a small current to flow. Practical use of this is mainly in instruments. A coil of wire rotated in the field of a magnet will produce an electromotive force and can cause current to flow. This is the basis of a generator. Chemical action, such as in a battery, produces an electromotive force, which can cause current to flow. 5, the number of electrons through the lamp every second is described as the rate of flow.

In the 1860s, Ettiene Lenoir developed the first practical gas engine. This engine used a form of electric ignition employing a coil developed by Ruhmkorff in 1851. In 1866, Karl Benz used a type of magneto that was belt driven. He found this to be unsuitable though, owing to the varying speed of his engine. He solved the problem by using two primary cells to provide an ignition current. In 1889, Georges Bouton invented contact breakers for a coil ignition system, thus giving positively tuned ignition for the first time.
