The Horch 18-22 PS was a veteran automobile that was produced between 1904 and 1905.

In the development of his automobiles, August Horch was especially interested in continuously enhancing the utility value of a motor vehicle for regular use. Reliability of the drive elements was not the only priority factor, user-friendliness became ever more important.

For this reason, he equipped his cars with a steeply slanting steering column from 1905 in order to allow a more comfortable seating position for the driver. A four-speed gearbox allowed the engine's torque to be exploited more effectively.

The car's four-cylinder in-line engine had a displacement of 2,725cc and a power output of between 18-22hp (hence the name) at 1,400rpm. The maximum speed of the car was 70 km/h.

The price of the 18-22 PS was 9,400 marks.
