Detroit Electric produced its first car in 2015, but since then we haven’t heard much about the brand. Now with lots of cash from a Chinese investor, Detroit Electric is ready to reveal its future model plans.

Thanks to $1.8 billion in capital from Far East Smarter Energy Group, UK-based, Detroit Electric, will outline its future product plans during its first ever appearance at the 2017 Low Carbon Vehicles event on September 6 and 7. “Having secured the solid financial foundation to embark on our business plan, we’re now building up our team to enable us to deliver our ambitious vehicle engineering programs,” stated Chief Technical Officer and Company Director Richie Frost.

To meet its production goals, Detroit Electric is doing a major recruitment drive for up to 200 positions that it wants to fill by next spring.

“This represents an opportunity to be a major part of an incredibly exciting, fast-moving company, as we begin the most exciting EV development projects in the UK. I think that differentiates us from other employers,” concludes Frost. “We’re looking forward to having a chance to meet some of UK’s most talented engineers in this field expected at Cenex and to share these exciting future plans with them.”
