    The EMF design became the standard Studebaker in about 1913, the design for which was used until, about 1919, when a complete redesign was implemented. Maybe Quinn will do one of his history narratives, and do a better job then I can.

    First Studebaker electric was sold on February 12, 1902 to F.W.Blees.
    Byron F. Everitt, William E. Metzger and Walter E. Flanders announced creation of the EMF corporation in June 1908 to produce gasoline powered vehicles.
    Frederick Fish, legal counsel to the Studebaker company and son-in-law to John M. Studebaker knew Studebaker could not survive on electric vehicles and wagons alone, and brokered the deal for EMF vehicles to be distributed through the Studebaker company.

    Tesla Cars and the forthcoming Trucks have NOTHING on Studebaker!

    They were already into electrics & the EMF venture was part of their experimenting with getting into the gasoline powered cars.

    I was just wondering about Studebaker's history with electric cars and was hoping that someone could provide me with an answer about them. Was it back in the days of E-M-F or what?
