The Detroit Electric was manufactured from 1907 to 1936, though most of its sales were in the teens. Advertised with an 80 mile range, its record (with special batteries and driving very slowly) was 241 miles! Popular with doctors (who still made house calls) and with women because of easy starting, Detroit Electrics were owned by both Thomas Edison and Clara Ford, the wife of Henry Ford. Here we see a dealer's car making a promotional trip from Seattle to Mt. Rainier.
