Anyone heard of this car? Looks pretty familiar...
9. Detroit Electric SP:01
Reduce your carbon footprint by driving a sports car... yeah, you heard right
Available in the fall, this amazingly curvy EV sports car (now being engineered in the UK) has an interesting perk for homeowners. The car itself will run for about 280 kilometers on a charge, which helps reduce carbon emissions on your way to work.
But at home, the car can act as an emergency back-up generator. In a power outage in your area, the car automatically senses a change on the smart grid and can provide power for appliances, heating and lights for about 24-48 hours.
The car will also be highly connected, offering apps you can use to monitor charge levels and even adjust charge time based on the lowest rates.
