New electric car in development






The American speciality motor manufacturing company, Saleen Automotive, has announced it is involved in the development of a new electric car. Full details will become available to financial and automotive media in early 2014. Steve Saleen, CEO of the company said that although he isn’t prepared to disclose all the details of the project at present he can reveal that it will be unlike anything currently in the marketplace. He went on to add that interested parties should “throw out” preconceived notions and expectations as the new vehicle will be revolutionary in its aesthetics and mechanics. 

“We recognize that electric cars are a trend, not a fad and expect this vehicle category to continue to increase as an automotive option for consumers” said Steve Saleen, CEO, Saleen Automotive Inc. “We intend to enter this market with an offering that is truly innovative and offers the styling and craftsmanship associated with the Saleen Automotive brand. The rapid pace of advancements in electric vehicle technology makes our entry into this market sector timely and should expedite completion of this project.”
