The Englishman Alfred Scott owned two companies. Scott Engineering Co. Ltd. built motorcycles with water-cooled engines and Scott Autocar Co. Ltd. manufactured three-wheelers, the Scott Sociables. Technically speaking, these three-wheelers were ahead of their time. 54 elements of the design were patented in 1915. The car had a single front wheel and two rear wheels, whereby the front wheel was situated in front of the right rear wheel. The rear wheels were linked by a fixed axle. The two-seater had a 578 cc, water cooled, two-cylinder, two stroke engine. In the early years the British army was the principal client.
The Sociable was used both for transporting personnel and for transporting army equipment. The three-wheeler also sold well after the First World War. Production of the model only ceased in 1926.
