The Elswick was an English automobile produced in Newcastle upon Tyne from 1903 until 1907.

It was a car built mainly from bought-in parts. The front featured a round radiator.

In 1904 the range offered included a 6 hp single-cylinder model with De Dion-Bouton engine, a 20 hp with Brouhot 4-cylinder and 24 hp with a Mutel engine. By 1906 the 20 and 24 hp models seem to have been dropped and alongside the 6 hp single were the four-cylinder 15/20 hp and 24/30 hp and a six-cylinder engine of 26/30 hp. Towards the end of production, manufacture might have moved to London.[1]
