The Ford Comuta was an experimental electric vehicle designed by Ford in the 1960s. The vehicle was powered by four 12-volt 85-amp lead batteries.[1]

When it was fully charged, the car had a range of 60 kilometres (37 mi) at a speed of 40 kilometres per hour (25 mph), and was capable of a maximum speed of 60 kilometres per hour (37 mph). Only a handful Comutas were produced, as the vehicle was an experiment.[2]
