About Detroit Electric

Detroit Electric is an iconic brand in the global electric vehicle sector. It was introduced in 1907 by the Anderson Electric Car Company and soon established itself as the market leader and most prolific manufacturer of electric cars.

Detroit Electric 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.

The company’s first production vehicle, the high performance pure electric sports car SP:01 goes on sale in Asia, Europe and North America, starting later this year. All the SP:01 cars will be manufactured in a new, dedicated Detroit Electric production facility in Leamington Spa, England.
