Dunk, whiose company, the Detralt Electric, now bullds these vehicles, the car is built so that there ts no occasion to get out and get under at any time, However, .as most motorists, though they drive gasoline vehicles, may be interested to know how an electric automobHe performs, the column will describe The first sheeeastlh blectric autor mobite was built-in the early auto- motive days by George M.

Until 1911 the electrics were driven by w double chain drive, one on either side of the car and running. to. the Tear wheels rom the crosswise motor shatt in front In 911, the motor was turned around so that its shatt would extend lengthwise to a. differential. inthe hus adopting this phase of the line Vehicle, besides the ull float: le, for its propulsion, This has iethod of drive since then. ery, on the Detroit Electric, vor of 26 electrits that once were built, is a 42-cell, 13-plate affalr that weighs between 1500. and. 1800 pounds.

The battery has capacity. of 180 to 190 ampere hours and will operate a vehicle ona single charge from 75 to 110 miles, depending on the speed. It heeds rom six to seven hours for re- charging. A guarantee of three years gocs with each battery, which ts quite opti- mistic as storage batteries go, But Dunk says there are batteries on some Of his cars that have gone for seven and eight years without renewal The weight of the battery. brings the total Weight of the automobile to almost two tons, But Dunk is expect tg the day in the near future when new type of battery, lighter, cheaper when put Into-mass production, and much more powerful and. efficient, will be available. This comes from Europe and is said to have the power domed cylinder heads.
