1919 Rauch & Lang up on eBay

1919 Rauch & Lang

Even though this is not the first EV ever built, the 1919 Rauch & Lang is certainly one of the most beautiful electric cars ever made and it’s now available for sale on eBay. The car has a very elegant blue & black coachwork, along with brass detailing and whitewall tires, plus a very elegant clock located inside the cabin.

The interior of this electric car is trimmed in gray broadcloth and just like many of the cars from that era; the driver controls it with the tiller mechanism, not a steering wheel. The car went through a thorough restoration process and it has been driven for only 276 miles. Its batteries have been recently replaced so it’s a fully functional car.

The listing says that Rauch & Lang began as a coachwork back in 1853 in Cleveland and later on in 1884, Charles Lang joined the company. The production of EVs started in 1905 and pretty soon they became a rival to the Baker Electric and the Detroit Electric.
