Buffalo Electric Vehicle Co.

"The Buffalo Electric Carriage Company (1900-1906), which became the Babcock Electric Carriage Company (1906-1912), changed its ownership again in 1912. It became The Buffalo Electric Vehicle Company and had a short life. It continued manufacturing at the 1911 complex at 1219-1247 Main Street in Buffalo (at Northhampton St.) but by 1916, it was out of business, one of 30 automakers that came and went in Buffalo in the twentieth century." - Western New York Heritage (online October 2017)
