Possibly chosen to make a distinction between vehicles propelled by petrol
or
diesel and electric vehicles.  Which would be rather amusing, as
petrol/diesel
vehicles have an engine, not a motor (so are really enginecars) whilst
electric
vehicles have a motor, not an engine (so really are motorcars).
Non-technical
usage doesn't make the distinction, so both are motorcars.  But maybe that's
a reason that "car" was chosen rather than "motorcar."
