The first car ever running live! The Benz Motorwagen (1885)
This is rare footage of the world's first car's engine igniting & running.
After developing a successful gas-powered two-stroke piston engine in 1873,
Karl Benz focused on developing a motorized vehicle. His Patent Motorwagen
(or Motor Car), introduced in 1886, is widely regarded as the first
purpose-built automobile, that is a vehicle designed from the ground up to
be motorized. Benz unveiled it officially on July 3, 1886 on the
Ringstraße in Mannheim, Germany. The vehicle was patented with German
patent number 37435, which Benz applied for on January 29, 1886.

1909 Baker Electric

Although a crude electric carriage was originally created in Scotland in
the late 1830s, the first functional electric car in the United States was
produced in 1891. For the next decade, the clean, quiet electric car was
the king of the road. In 1899, an electric car broke the vehicular land
speed record, and by 1900, there were more electric cars than any other
kind in the U.S., accounting for 38% of the nations car market.
Jay still uses his Bakers original Edison batteries.
In 1898, the same year that gasoline-powered vehicles first appeared,
automotive innovator Walter C. Baker started the Baker Motor Vehicle
Company in Cleveland, Ohio to produce his electric cars. His company went
on to manufacture more electric vehicles than any other company in history,
despite the fact that it ceased production of them in 1916. Baker presented
the first ever shaft-driven automobile at the first American auto show at
Madison Square Garden, and is said to have sold his first electric car to
Thomas Edison, who developed its batteries. Jay still uses his 1909 Bakers
original Edison batteries. He just washes them out occasionally and refills
them, and they work fine.
The essentially maintenance-free Baker Electric was a high coupe with
carriage styling, brass fittings and tillers instead of steering wheels.
With no cranks, no fumes and no mess, the cars were very appealing to
women, and were soon designed and marketed specifically to them. Stepping
into a Baker was a little like stepping into a very small parlor - Jays
Baker even includes a small make-up compact with mirror attached to an
interior wall. Its not surprising that its his wifes favorite car, even if
it is a little bit like riding in a phone booth.
One charge will take the car about 110 miles, which isnt much different
from contemporary EVs. This is one car you dont want to take on the
freeway, and its not so great on hills either. The top speed of Jays car is
about 25 mph, which is probably a good thing, since it only has rear
brakes. Back in the day, Baker became the first man to travel at 100 mph in
his electric Torpedo, but a fatal accident during the trial kept him from
claiming the record and making any further attempts to win it. When Charles
Kettering invented the electric starter in 1912, and Henry Ford began mass
producing gasoline powered cars which cost half as much as the average
electric, Bakers days were numbered. Still, its difficult to believe there
arent more electric cars on the road today.
