BAT otherwise known as British Associated Transport.

The chassis were made by Harris and Hasell of Bristol from kits by Reo.

Two models were built. The first model was the BAT Cruiser which had a six-cylinder engine and held 20 seats. The second model was the BAT Super Pullman which had a eight-cylinder engine and held 32 seats.

BAT Cruisers were the best sellers and one was offered as a prize to the person who suggested the best improvement to the model.

1931 BAT only lasted two years due to the depressed economic situation.
