The Church-Field was an electric car manufactured in Sibley, Michigan, by the Church-Field Motor Company from 1912-1913.[1] The Church-Field had an underslung chassis, and used a two-speed transmission. With a choice of ten electrical selector positions, it gave the vehicle a total choice of twenty speed ranges.[1] Two body styles were offered - a roadster selling for $2300, and a coupe for $2800.[2]

The car was launched at the Detroit Automobile Show in January 1912, but production and sales were minimal, with the result that the factory was closed in September 1913.[2] The assets of the company were sold in 1915 for just $600.[2]
