Already at the factory 111 years ago, the model with a removable hardtop received an all-electric powertrain. However, over the years of operation, the rare car was equipped with many new parts, including modern electrical system components.

The presented specimen was collected in 1931 for a resident of the American state of Virginia.

Externally, the 111-year-old electric car resembles a classic carriage with two doors. Inside there is a two-seater leather sofa with a footrest, as well as a lever for steering the wheels. The instrument panel is a volt and ammeter. In addition, the car is equipped with a removable hard roof, which can be replaced with a fabric top in the summer.
