1916 Hybrid: The Owen Magnetic

Owen Magnetic was a pioneer of American hybrid electric luxury automobiles. Manufactured between 1915 and 1922, the brand was known for the use of an electromagnetic transmission and early adoption of electric series hybrid drivetrain. On the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage (pandemic edition), our host introduces us to a 1916 Hybrid Owen Magnetic. The blue beauty is one of only a dozen or so in the country, which makes it as rare as it is classic. Watch the video below to hear why Jay describes it as the most unusual car he’s ever had. Enjoy.
