First electric car in New York?

Family lore has it that my paternal grandmother, Blanche Cushing (née Ida Blanche Goll), was the proud owner of the first electric car in New York City. My research indicates that it is a Hupp-Yeats "Regent." Here, you can see the 1913 New Jersey license plate. Is it true? Who knows, it's still a good story.
