Detroit Electric is an iconic brand in the electric vehicle sector, an original innovator and pioneer that began life in 1907. Five years after the brand's resurrection by CEO Albert Lam, excitement is building at the heart of Detroit Electric once again.
The company's first commercial offering, the SP:01, delivers on Detroit Electric's mantra of
'Pure Electric Performance', offering superior performance, driving dynamics and class-leading handling. The limited-edition SP:01 will herald a new family of all-electric production cars, including two other high-performance models that are planned from 2016.
