Detroit Electric SP:01 Roadster

Detroit Electric SP:01 Roadster

Little known Detroit Electric sure dreams big.

We're well aware that Detroit Electric is seeking a manufacturing facility in Wayne County, Michigan to produce its $135,000 Tesla-cloning SP:01 electric roadster.

We further know that Detroit Electric teamed with China's Geely Automobile Group to produce the Emgrand EC7-EV-Detroit Technology in China.

But now there's this third production facility, located in the Netherlands, that's being pumped up by the Detroit Electric PR team.

We're not entirely sure what Detroit Electric intends to manufacture in the Netherlands, but it could be that it's simply a site for Europe-bound SP:01s or perhaps it's for an entirely different electric vehicle.

Either way, Detroit Electric is certainly optimistic, considering that it has yet to make or sell a single production-ready vehicle.

Why do we say optimistic?  Well, we can't quite think of any other automaker in the world that hasn't produced a vehicle yet has or will have manufacturing locations on three continents.  Can you?
