Innovations

The unique SAMI infotainment system

The cabin of the SP:01 is packed with innovation. The jewel is our Smartphone Application Managed Infotainment system - ‘SAMI’. SAMI provides access to everything from the music player, satellite navigation and interior lighting to vehicle systems statuses such as battery level and range to recharge. SAMI even acts as a remote control via GSM - enabling users to locate the vehicle and operate the climate control system.

MORE THAN JUST A CAR

“Detroit Electric is a company born out of innovation, entrepreneurship and the determination to build high performance pure-electric cars that are exciting to drive.”

DON GRAUNSTADT, CEO, North American Operations.

“Our research engineers at Detroit Electric have taken steps to break the mould. SP:01 is more than just a car, it is a mobile energy unit - allowing the user to harness its stored battery energy to power not just the car but even an entire home. SP:01 is equipped with bi-directional charge and discharge capability, allowing it to release its stored electrical energy to power a home.”

Chairman & CEO of Detroit Electric, Mr. Albert Lam.

The SP:01’s bi-directional charge and discharge feature is made possible through the patented Detroit Electric home charging and power back-up unit, named ‘360-POWERBACK’.

This smart home charging and power back-up unit enables the SP:01’s battery to be charged at the rate of 8kW (32A@240VAC). It can also detect any power failure on the grid and provide the option to the user - via SAMI (through the GSM network) - to instruct the vehicle to restore power to the home using its stored energy.

With Detroit Electric, your vehicle is no longer just a means of transport. It’s a revolution for the way you use energy.
