Detroit Electric Holdings Ltd

Detroit Electric is an iconic brand in the electric vehicle sector. The company began life in 1906 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 car, the SP:01 goes on sale in Asia, EMEA and North America, starting in early 2015. All the cars will be manufactured in a new, dedicated Detroit Electric production facility in Leamington Spa, England.

The company has its global headquarters on the 18th floor of the iconic Fisher Building, located in downtown Detroit, USA, which is the company’s financial headquarters and will be the centre for overseeing activities in North America.

Detroit Electric has also invested in a new EMEA headquarters, located in Houten, Netherlands, where the company has already recruited a new team to manage the brand’s Sales and Marketing activities including vehicle sales, customer service and marketing in the region.
