The Menominee was an electric automobile built in Menominee, Michigan by the Menominee Electric Manufacturing Company in 1915.[1] This company mainly built commercial electric vehicles, but did make a limited number of electric cabriolets.[2] The cabriolet had a 108-inch wheelbase, with a top speed of 20 mph, with a range of 50–60 miles on each charge.[2] A price of $1,250 also included a recharging kit for the battery.[2] Production had started in July 1915, but had ended by the end of the year.[2]
