Andrew Lawrence Riker (1868–1930) was an early automobile designer. He began experimenting with electric vehicles in 1884. He formed the Riker Electric Motor Company in 1888 to make electric motors, and a year later formed the Riker Motor Vehicle Company in Elizabeth, New Jersey. (All of the advertising and news items refer to the location as "Elizabethport".) The company was absorbed by the Electric Vehicle Company in 1901.
