The American WAVERLEY Company situated in Indianapolis produced electric cars from 1898 on.
On this emblem they proudly present the dates between 1899 and 1911 when winning an award for the electric car.  Like many electrics the WAVERLEY was given a pronounced hood and the look of a gasoline car by 1912 [Georgano]. In 1916 they closed.

On this contemporary ad of 1912 you see the crest of WAVERLY, also used on the emblem.
Any questions concerning the range of the 1912 WAVERLEY ?
"More milage than any day requires" is the answer as you can read !
