Which electric is this?

Recommended Posts

Curious if anyone can identify the electric car in this photo. The photo was taken in Sears, Illinois (now part of Rock Island, Illinois) around 1918:

Detroit Electric I believe.

Year is even more difficult as they did not change much.


It is really interesting reading about these antiques. They claimed 75-100 mile range, fast external DC chargers, etc. Not much different than most of todays fledgling EVs. Only 25 mph max though.
