Detroit Electric SP:01 is all set to take on the Tesla Roadster


We love sports cars and when these gas-guzzling maniacs turn environment-friendly and eco-friendly, we simply can’t resist them! Which is why, we bring to you one of the greenest sports cars we have come across off-late, designed, developed and brought to the world by Detroit Electric. The car is a perfect comeback for the company and is called the Detroit Electric SP:01. Using a body-pattern that leans heavily on that of the Lotus Exige, this electric car uses bespoke bodywork constructed for Detroit Electric and is made entirely out of carbon fiber!


Capable of touching the 62 mph mark in just 3.7 seconds, the Detroit Electric SP:01 sprints to a top speed of 155 mph and is expected to be the “fastest-ever production electric car.” Also, this car comes with a mid-rear configuration, with the motor and battery pack tucked in the middle and powering the rear wheels. Complete with a luxurious cockpit sporting leather and carbon fiber and using regenerative breaking to its advantage, the Detroit Electric SP:01 is indeed the car to look out for! The company plans to have these go on sale later this year.
