Which col­lectable EV?

Classic Cars (UK) - - Letters - Quentin Will­son

Should the ad­ven­tur­ous in­vestors be col­lect­ing a) early elec­tric cars, start­ing with those of the early 20th and early 21st cen­turies, or b) London OF THE MONTH taxi­cabs? Forbes Spraw­son Early EVS are the rarest clas­sics of all be­cause most have dis­ap­peared. Sur­viv­ing ex­am­ples of the 1906 Fritchle or 1907 Detroit Elec­tric may be­come more valu­able than to­day’s veter­ans. I’d also look at the weird Amer­i­can stuff like the ’67 Elec­tric Ram­bler Amer­i­can, ’74 Se­bring Van­guard, ’77 AMC Elec­tra and the Bri­tish ’73 En­field Elec­tric (I owned one once). Best in­vest­ment would be the game-chang­ing 1996 GM EV1 but most were crushed. The first Tesla Road­ster is al­ready fiercely prized. Def­i­nitely an elec­tri­fied in­vest­ment.
