Who invented the first central locking system and what car was it first fitted to?

asked in cars, history, central locking

seacommander answers:

According to this Wiki article:

'Power door locks (also known as electric door locks or central locking)'

'Power door locks were introduced on the luxury Scripps-Booth in 1914, but were not common on luxury cars until Packard reintroduced them in 1956.'


Supplement from 01/09/2009 10:08pm:

This is a 1914 Scripps-Booth. Looking at the car I'm not sure what advantage central locking, or indeed any locking conferred on this vehicle!!
