ABOUT DETROIT ELECTRIC

 

Heralding the rebirth of the original electric car brand in 2008 and with the creation and delivery of the SP:01 high-performance electric sports car generated over 120 innovative technology patents. Detroit Electric has since established itself as an innovative technology-based vehicle manufacturer, and it will contribute over 900 patents and enormous expertise in battery and hydrogen technology to this partnership.

 

Early in the last century, the electric vehicle industry was flourishing in Detroit, USA, and a company called Detroit Electric was at its very heart, innovating and selling more electric vehicles than any other company. By 1912, there were numerous American electric vehicle makers, with Detroit Electric both the market leader and the most prolific, going on to make around 13,000 cars – which is an electric vehicle production World Record for the twentieth century. Notable customers included but were not limited to Thomas Edison, Mamie Eisenhower, John D. Rockerfeller Jr., and Clara Ford, the wife of Henry Ford.

 

The brand was revived in 2008 by Albert Lam, former Group CEO of the Lotus Engineering Group and Executive Director of Lotus Cars of England, with a vision to produce an electric vehicle that seamlessly integrates refined aesthetics, innovative technology and superior handling and performance.
