Several months into the 1915 model year, the Metz Model 22 gave way to the new Metz Model 25. The Metz 25 was equipped with a 3 1/4 inch bore x 4 inch stroke four cylinder engine that developed 25 horsepower. A single chain drive was used instead of the double roller chain drive used on the Metz 22 horsepower automobiles.

Priced at $600.00 the Roadster and Touring Car body styles were available with a 105 inch wheelbase. The price included a Gray and Davin electric starter and lights, one man top, 32 inch artillery wheels, 3 1/2 inch Goodrich clincher tires, horn speedometer, gas gauge and tool box.

No Metz automobiles were manufactured in 1918 due to World War I. During the war the U.S. Government took over the plant to make airplane parts. After World War I styles had changed but the Government never paid The Metz Company enough to retool. Some plants were sold to raise money for the next generation of Metz cars, the Metz Master Six.
