1922 MILBURN ELECTRIC

THE ELECTRIC HORSELESS CARRIAGE

Production Years: 1922
Country: United States
Number Produced: Unknown

Engineered by Karl Probst

The Electric Horseless Carriage.  Final evolution of the early American All Electric Car.

 

The Milburn is a very good late example of the first generation of electric cars. The styling is that of a horse-drawn buggy. Range is limited to 60 miles and the speed to 30 miles per hour. The Milburn was very well built but the cost (new) was over ten times the cost of a 1922 Ford Model T.

With 14 new deep cycle batteries weighing in at over 900 pounds, our Milburn was a recent participant in the Pebble Beach Road Tour featuring Early American Electric Cars.
