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. SP:01 is the first car to have such a management system. 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.Sign Up
MORE THAN JUST A CAR
We are committed to doing our part for this great revival of Detroit through innovation, entrepreneurship and determinationDon Graunstadt, CEO.
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:01s 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:01s battery to be charged at the rate of 8kWh (240V@32A). 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. Its a revolution for the way you use energy.
