Component for a Ford Comuta electric car, by Square D, Swindon, United Kingdom
Ford UK designed the Comuta in the 1960s as a non-polluting car for urban and suburban motoring. Powered by four 12-volt 85 amp lead batteries, when fully charged the car had a range of 60 kilometres at a speed of 40 km/h and was capable of a maximum speed of 60 km/h. As an experimental car only two Comutas were made, designed and built at Ford’s Dunton Technical Centre, near Laindon.
