Electric Car 1960's

Unknown car make but probably one of the first electrical cars ever designed, probably late 1960s.


That 'unknown' electric car is the AMC Amitron concept, from 1967. I t was a joint venture by American Motors Corporation (AMC) and Gulton Industries of Metuchen, New Jersey. It used a combination of nickel-cadmium batteries (for bursts of acceleration) and two 75 lb (34 kg) lithium batteries for extended cruising.
