1909 Baker Electric Car

Electric cars are not a new thing. This is a model of the beautiful Baker Electric from 1909. It was produced by the Baker Motor Vehicle Company in Ohio, which was the largest manufacturer of electric cars in the early 1900s. The car is controlled with a tiller instead of a steering wheel. Its range on a charge is about 100 miles or 161 km. Thomas Edison designed the long lasting batteries used in this car.
I wonder how the efficiency and range of electric cars would have developed if they had been the standard over the last 100 years.
This LEGO build of the 1909 Baker Electric car has details like fenders, interior and leaf spring suspension. The scale of the car is about 1:10. The dark blue license plate looks like those used in Ohio in 1909.
I hope you like my model of the Baker Electric!
