The Detroit Electric was the most popular and long-lived electric vehicle to be sold in the United States. 13,290 cars were produced by Anderson Electric (which became Detroit Electric in 1919) in the 32 years of operation from 1907 to 1939. Production fell off sharply after Kettering developed the electric starter for cars in 1912.
The car is powered by fourteen (14) 6-volt batteries that provide 84 volts to the motor. The restoration of this car was a family affair beginning with Jill's father Don in 1972, then her brother Steve in 1993, and finally a restoration ship in 2004 with completion in 2007.Also photographed at :
