The Wagenhals Motor Co.
Detroit, Michigan

The Wagenhals was an American Automobile with three wheels produced by The Wagenhals Motor Co. W. G. Wagenhals was the owner of this Detroit, Michigan company in the early 1900s.

Wagenhals was a mechanical engineer and among his many innovations and inventions were the arc lamp for electric cars and rail system for New York City and a light inner city three wheeled delivery car shown below.

The Wagenhals featured a fuel efficient two cylinder engine mounted crosswise between the two front wheels. The transmission was a planetary type with a single chain drive to the single rear wheel. This early American Automobile was designed specifically for those who needed a light inner city delivery car.

In 1914 The Wagenhals Motor Co. introduced a smaller version of the original Wagenhal, an electric model, and the updating of the two-cylinder version with a four-cylinder model ensured even further growth for the company. Also in 1914 a government order of 1,000 commercial cars which were to be purchased for use in connection with the Post Office never materialized and the company quietly closed its doors in 1915.
