Maxwell was a brand of automobiles manufactured in the United States from about 1904 to 1925. The present-day successor to the Maxwell company is Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
Maxwell automobile production began under the Maxwell-Briscoe Company of North Tarrytown, NY. The company was named after founder Jonathan Dixon Maxwell, who earlier had worked for Oldsmobile, and his business partner, Benjamin Briscoe, an automobile industry pioneer and part owner of the Briscoe Brothers Metalworks. In 1907, following a fire that destroyed the North Tarrytown, NY, factory, Maxwell-Briscoe opened a mammoth automobile factory in New Castle, IN.
For a time, Maxwell was considered one of the three top automobile firms in America, along with General Motors and Ford.
By 1914, Maxwell had sold 60,000 cars. The company responded to the increasing number of low-priced cars with the Model 25. At $695, this five-seat touring car had high-tension magneto ignition, electric horn and optional electric starter and headlights, and an innovative shock absorber to protect the radiator.
