The Detroit Electric SP:01 is a limited-edition, two-seat pure-electric sports car that sets new standards for performance and handling in electric vehicles. Boasting an impressive 155mph, 250km/h* top speed and covering the 0-60mph sprint in a blistering 3.7 seconds* (0-100km/h in 3.9 seconds*), performance motoring has a new champion.
The rear-wheel-drive SP:01 features a compact, mid-mounted 210kW electric motor, a lightweight, purpose-designed battery pack and carbon fibre bodywork fitted as standard. The SP:01 has an excellent power-to-weight ratio-contributing to its superior performance, driving dynamics and class-leading handling.
The cabin of the SP:01 is packed with innovation. The jewel is our Smartphone Application Managed Infotainment system - ‘SAMI’. SAMI provides access to everything from the music player and satellite navigation to vehicle systems statuses such as battery level and range to recharge. SAMI even acts as a remote control via GSM - enabling users to locate the vehicle and operate the climate control system.Sign up

The SP:01’s bi-directional charge and discharge feature is made possible through the Detroit Electric home charging and power back-up unit, named '360-POWERBACK'.
This smart home charging and power back-up unit enables the SP:01’s battery to be charged at the rate of 8kW (32A@240VAC). It can also detect any power failure on the grid and provide the option to the user - via SAMI (through the GSM network) - to instruct the vehicle to restore power to the home using its stored energy.
With Detroit Electric, your vehicle is no longer just a means of transport. It’s a revolution for the way you use energy.Sign up
