Detroit Electric SP:01 the Electricity Back to Detroit

often forget that propulsion for automobiles is not a new concept. Carriage Company in the early produced The Detroit Electric. a electric vehicle for the time. Now the is back with a Detroit producing the SP:01.

The $135,000 is Detroit Electric s first foray into the sports car, and they to want to follow in the tracks of but improve on the products along the

The SP:01 is based on the Lotus and that comes as no surprise the modern Detroit Electric was by Albert Lam in 2008. Lam came Lotus as their Executive It seems when a company to make a sports car without all the sports car stuff, they to Lotus.

Tesla did the same thing the Roadster, which was built on the platform from Lotus.

in size to the Tesla Roadster, the Electric SP:01 is capable 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds. That time is on par with the fastest Roadster, the Roadster Plus. for Detroit-based brands, the SP:01 also be able to outrun the new Stingray in the same run as well as vehicles of similar horsepower.

The Electric SP:01 is only of achieving 155mph, but that is faster than what any is currently capable of achieving.

All of this performance is delivered by a asynchronous AC motor that is by two 37-kWh lithium polymer This delivers 201 horsepower and 166 of torque. Although those seem small, electric make torque immediately zero RPM. What means is the engine is working its all the way from idle to red line. A engine only makes its performance across a certain of the rev band.

Electric motors have the advantage of being silent.

When talking a sports car, many do not discuss fuel economy but the Detroit Electric SP:01 is going to obtain 180 miles per based on the new European testing for electric vehicles. While numbers have not been that would be approximately 150 on the US cycle. That mileage is also on par with the Tesla

Thanks to the carbon-fiber body, the weighs in at a svelte 2,403 which also helps and overall performance.

So what the SP:01 different from the Roadster? The SP:01 features a manual transmission and an optional automatic. The Tesla Roadster was to have a two-speed automatic, but was due to engineering difficulties. Because of the of the electric motor, the Detroit SP:01 needs to be only in 2nd to hit 60mph, and there really is not a to shift to third or fourth you need to go those speeds should not improve by driving in gear everywhere). The automatic of the SP:01 will feature two

Both vehicles should the same top speed. One additional of the electric power train is there is no need for a clutch motor is either on or off). off from a traffic light just pressing the accelerator in the manual-equipped version). The only advantage the now out-of-production Tesla had was price.

The $135,000 cost of entry for the is significantly higher than the

The 155 mph top speed is an important number and for an electric car. Most vehicles are electronically limited to 155 mph for on the Autobahn, and by achieving that the vehicle hints to the world it is capable of keeping up with the vehicles in the world.

Detroit hope to have several vehicles in the pipeline come They seem to be running on an Tesla time table the sports car, then the sedan), but so far that has been for them. Hopefully, Detroit will provide some needed competition in the space to innovation and keep the costs
