Default 1915 Galt Motor Co gas-electric - worlds first hybrid?

1915 Galt gas-electric motor car
Galt Motor Co, 8 Dickson St., Ontario

Was at the library yesterday reviewing some old trade journals for another project and came across this article. Probably didn't do over 15 or 20 mph and note it's rated in ton-miles.
Enjoy
