Detroit Electric brand is finally ready for a proper launch, five years after revival, with an all-new electric sports car to be unveiled next month. This two-seater Tesla Roadster rival is the first from a diverse family of high-performance electric vehicles.
They are beginning slow and cautious with a preview event in Detroit in April and then a show debut in Shanghai, but eventually they are planning to produce 2,500 units of the sports EV per year.
Not much is known about the car itself, but the teaser picture shows a rather good-looking sports car. The resemblance to the Corvette must have something to do with that fact that they are both made in Detroit.
“We are proud to become the fourth car manufacturer born out of Detroit, and the first to manufacture a pure electric sports car from Michigan,” said the company’s CEO, Don Graunstadt. “We are committed to doing our part for this great revival of Detroit through innovation, entrepreneurship and determination – what we like to call ‘Detroit 2.0’. Our investors and management team are thankful to the State of Michigan for the help provided in allowing Detroit Electric to carry on the legacy that began in Michigan so many years ago.”
