The Fritchle Auto and Buggy Co.
Denver, CO

Olivier P. Fritchle designed and built this American Electric car in Denver Co. from 1904 to 1917. The Fritchle was produced as a Model A two passenger Victoria Phaeton and a four passenger Coupe.

In addition Broughams were also made. Prices ranged from $2,000.00 to $3,600.00.

In 1908 the Fritchle electric challenged other nakers of Electric Automobiles to a race from Lincoln, NE to New York. No one took up the challenge, so The Fritchle Auto and Buggy Co. made the trip alone in one of their two passenger Victoria Phaetons.

The Fritchle completed the 1800 mile trip in 28 days. It was helped by lightweight batteries which gave Fritchle Electric car a range of over 100 miles per charge. The Fritchle Victoria Phaeton was considered the ideal lady's carriage for city and country use.
