Detroit Electric SP:01 the Electric Sports Car

The Tesla Roadster was a car for many reasons. First, it that the term “ electric car ” didn’t have to be an oxymoron. it proved that there was a (albeit a very small due to the six-figure price tag) for a car.

And third, it paved the way for ’s next model, the highly-acclaimed S . So it’s a bit of a shame that it was after an abbreviated 2012 year.

So that’s the end of the road for electric sports cars, Well, no. Mercedes-Benz will start selling an all-electric SLS AMG . But if you want something lighter, and with an open top?

Well, there’s a new company an old name that looks set to to your tastes.

The name of the is Detroit Electric . derived the original company that about 13,000 electric between 1906 and 1939. And the first iteration of Detroit (and as the name suggests), the is based in the Motor City, the historic Fisher Building as the headquarters. Assembly of the car – named the – will take place else in Wayne County.

And the process will start the modified chassis of a new Lotus . which is similar to the path took with the Elise Roadster.

Detroit Electric is also a similar strategy with to styling. The SP:01 shares its lights and basic shape the Exige, but the carbon fiber incorporates reshaped front and fascias, non-opening front and side scoops. The four taillights are also arranged in a formation, but the lift-off roof is basically the same as it is on the Lotus.

and tires are 16” in front and 17” in back.

it’s basically standard car fare, with one notable The SP:01 will feature a ( Android . iOS . Windows or Blackberry . Electric isn’t saying.) system dubbed SAMI . for Smartphone Application Managed It controls the sound system, interior lighting, and can make and phone calls, as well as you to monitor telemetry like the of charge for the batteries and how far you can go on the charge you

SAMI can also function as a control unit to do things turn on the climate control and or check the charge status of the via your smartphone.

So what of batteries are we talking about? talking about two 37 kWh lithium-polymer packs . and they feed to an air-cooled AC motor that the equivalent of 201hp and 166 lb.-ft of And unlike most EVs, the has multiple speeds, and there are transmissions from which will be able to choose: A manual will be standard, a 5-speed manual and a 2-speed will be optional.

But because electric motors their maximum torque 0 rpm and up (and aren’t turning the vehicle is stopped), you won’t to use the clutch when you stop or from a stop a standard SP:01.

Naturally, all that (and a claimed 2,354 lb. weight) means the SP:01 really scoot. Detroit claims 0-62 mph runs take 3.7 seconds . while the top will be 155 mph . On the European driving range is 180 miles per charge 150 miles on the EPA’s cycle.). A charge, incidentally, is expected to 4.3 hours with the 240V charger. And thanks to some computer programming, the home can also detect a loss of coming from the grid, and give the SP:01 owner the to use the car to serve as a backup power for the house.

Very cool, but probably not of use if the batteries are almost drained at the the blackout starts.

Detroit says SP:01 prices start at $135,000 . a figure will increase with and decrease with any applicable tax That’s a lot of money for a car with two hardly any luggage space, and a limited driving range. But it can provide backup power to house and you’ll never to take it to a gas station (and the Roadster wasn’t much maybe it’s not so bad.
