The Studebaker Electric was an American Automobile produced by The Studebaker Brothers Manufacturing Company of South Bend, Indiana from 1902 to 1912.

The Studebaker Electric was a true horseless carriage sporting a body that was of buggy design. It was designed by Thomas A. Edison.

A unique feature of the Studebaker Electric is that the motor is suspended from the body frame and power is transmitted to the rear axle by means of a chain. The Studebaker Electric was equipped with a standard Westinghouse vehicle motor. A battery of 24 cells was used that was durable but not the extremely high capacity of some other electric automobiles of the time. The controller has four speeds and was located under the seat.

All the Studebaker Electric cars would travel from 30 to 80 miles on ordinary roads with a single charge. Speeds vary from 3 to 18 miles per hour. In short, the Studebaker Electric was slow but reasonably competitive in 1902. A total of 20 Studebaker Electric automobiles were sold that first year. Studebaker Electric production was never very high and had been reduced to a trickle by 1940 and ceased entirely by 1912.
