When Detroit Electric first announced the development of the SP:01, a lot of eyebrows were raised. Now however, the SP:01 battery-electric sports roadster has been updated and is in the midst of a production run in Detroit. In fact, Detroit Electric has begun taking pre-orders and is expected to start shipping the vehicles soon.
This vehicle is essentially the world's fastest two-seat electric car. Some of the specs of this vehicle are simply mind-boggling. For one, it is capable of zipping from zero to 100 km/h in only 3.9 seconds, and is capable of attaining a top speed of 249 km/h. This is thanks to the inclusion of an electric motor that pumps out 285 horsepower and 207 pounds-feet of torque via a single-speed automatic transmission.
Ultimately, the SP:01 electric roadster is revolutionizing the electric car and proving that you can have sporty fun in an electric vehicle.
