This 1912 advertisement praised the "well known efficiency" of Baker Motor Vehicle Company's electric automobiles. Similar ads from the period touted the Baker electric vehicles as simple to use, reliable, safe, clean, and elegantly styled. Sales of "electrics," however, were beginning to decline. Gasoline-powered vehicles with internal combustion engines were beginning to dominate the market.
