Detroit Electric to Deliver 3 Cars by 2021, Including an SUV and Sports Model
|   Monday, September 11, 2017
The US start-up Detroit Electric has announced plans to build three new cars by 2021, a sports car, an SUV and a sedan to attack the electric car market.
Announced as an alternative brand to Tesla Motors, Detroit Electric announced plans for future years. The Americans are preparing the launch of an electric sports model first, which would also introduce the brand platform for future models. Detroit Electric wants to recruit up to 200 engineers to help them finish their plans.


With a starting price of nearly 200,000 euros, the electric sports model will compete with the Porsche 911 Turbo, McLaren 720S and the Ferrari 488.
We are talking about the cheapest option, because performance versions are priced to match.

The range for the three announced models would start from 510 kilometers (300 miles), with a maximum of 800 kilometers (around 500 miles). However, the company did not disclose the suppliers with whom it will collaborate.

The Detroit Electric SUV is set to be released in 2019, and will be placed in the luxury segment, and will have a comparable price to Bentley Bentayga. Currently, the three announced models are in the design phase.

The company has its sights set on a worldwide sales spread, with hopes of about 30% sales to be scored in Europe, 30% in Asia and 30% from their home turf. The rest of the world will account for the remaining 10%. Some 500 million dollars are already being spent on outfitting a Chinese production facility.
