The Automatic Transportation Company of Buffalo, New York built an electric car in 1921.[1] The car was a 2-seater with a wheelbase of 65in (1650mm), and a total length of 95in (2411mm).[1] The Automatic had a top speed of 18 mph (29 kmh), and sold for $1200.[1]

The company promised that 60 miles travel could be achieved between charging, and that the car could be parked in a 4 ft x 8 ft space.[2] Very few cars were sold.[2]
