The electronic starter is the motor that people usually refer to now, also known as the starter. It is rotated by the energized coil in the magnetic field to drive the rotor of the starter to rotate. The pinion on the rotor drives the flywheel of the engine to rotate, thereby driving the crankshaft to rotate. The innovation of two new low-cost spark plugs and starters with a ceramic core base has laid the technical foundation for the development of the car.
The electronic starter eliminates the cumbersome and dangerous hand crank, making the car safer and more convenient, especially favored by new consumers including women. At the time, Henry Leland, the manager of General Motors Cadillac, immediately became keenly aware of the potential of this technological achievement, and soon adopted it as a standard configuration, applied to the company's 1912 Cadillac model, this Cadillac also got Name "no crank car". The advent of electronic starters is still recognized as the most influential automotive innovation of the twentieth century.
