Here it is…the production version of the Detroit Electric SP:01.

Jerry Chung, design chief at Detroit Electric, states:

“The final design of SP:01 incorporates signature Detroit Electric design DNA, carried over from the prototype model we revealed last year. Coupled with many motorsport visual cues, the new fastback design, bold face and sharp contours evoke the company’s vision of pure electric performance.”

    Am I the only one who thinks this looks exactly like… well, you know.

    Also, the only difference between the 2 models is the gearbox, with the resulting performance discrepancy?

    1. a Lotus? says:

      Yes.. yes it does look like every other Lotus conversion out there…

  2. Ryan says:

    And I thought my Roadster gets confused for a Lotus a lot… this car is almost pure Lotus

    Well, looking at P85D this is funny. It should be priced far below 100000 to be worth of considering over P85D.

  4. 37kWh battery? That is significantly smaller than the 2008 Tesla Roadster.

    Why wouldn’t I just buy a used Roadster and wait for the 400 mile battery upgrade?

    Too little, too late….

    Pretty much sums it up. Good try though.

    no thanks

    And here goes another prove of the good work of Tesla.
    Best thing of this model is the light weight, but I think 1.300kg and 50kWh is is more atractive for the clients.
    If you use it as a sport car the battery will last 100km

  8. Rob says:

    Even the lightest version is more than TWICE the weight of my old S1 Elise!
