Detroit Electric has announced that in early April it will unveil a partnership with a Chinese carmaker to start August production of a limited edition, all electric sports vehicle in Michigan. Detroit Electric is led by Albert Lam, formerly Group CEO of the Lotus Engineering Group. The company will be headquartered in Detroit. The car will use lithium-ion batteries from Kokam Co. Ltd. The original Detroit Electric was in business from 1907 to 1939, and sold around 13,000 electric vehicles during that period.
