Project / story

Their challenge

Detroit Electric’s SP:01 is a full electric sports car, designed to perform. Given the limited space available and the 210 kW power to be pulled by the motor, developing an energy system was no small challenge. It turned out to become one of several custom automotive developments MG has taken on for Detroit Electric. MG’s electrical and mechanical experts pushed their talents beyond limits while developing a equally impressive and compact high power battery pack, to drive this car to the max.
