Detroit Electric readies for launch of fastest all-electric production car

Built on the Lotus Elise chassis, this lightweight, two-seat, rear-wheel drive, open-top sportscar has been developed by Detroit Electric and is currently undergoing dynamic testing at a facility in Europe.

The carmaker said the model ‘promises to thrill the EV market with its blistering performance and exhilarating dynamics’.

This latest version of the SP:01 has seen additional development work carried out by Detroit Electric’s engineers and designers since a pre-production version of the vehicle was revealed to the media at events in Detroit, USA and Shanghai, China, last year.

Further details of the car and Detroit Electric’s production and sales plans will be announced in the coming weeks.
