    It was patented in 1971 and sold as "Ramostar".

    The first production car was an American Motors product (Renault Alliance) in 1983.

    They did not actually become reliable until the advent of electronic engine management. With fuel injection, tripping the choke down became un-needed to start. Prior to that electronic start produced a lot of dead batteries and flooded engines.

    When they came with a strong enough battery and the starter motor,  (my remote was the old lady) As all she had to do was turn the key to start the car and no hand crank on the engine...so 1930?
