The Auto Red Bug Roadster looks like a go cart, but was an automotive innovation as one of the first small vehicles introduced to the public. The Red Bug combined the practicality of the modern automobile with the convenience of small size and economical power. As a result, it became extremely popular with both young people and adults looking for a vehicle with short distance capacity. Many estate-owners purchased them for getting around their grounds, and farmers found them useful, as well, to quickly cover large distances. Some island communities that didn’t allow full-size automobiles, did permit the use of cars like Red Bugs. These small electric powered vehicles were first manufactured in 1916. This one was made by Automotive Electric Services Corp of North Bergen, New Jersey. Referred to as “buckboards” because of their wooden slats, they were powered by an electric motor. There are not many of these vehicles left in existence. This would make a great addition to any collection. Year of manufacture is approximate.
