Detroit-Bound Electric Car Spied

By David Thomas  on January 8, 2009

As a rule, we never run spy photos on KickingTires. We want to make sure every scrap of information we post is official so no reader is misled in any way. However, today we’re making a lone exception. A very reliable source in Detroit forwarded us the above shot from a cell phone. It’s of an electric vehicle being offloaded to be prepared for the Detroit auto show, and it is not from a major automaker.

The world of boutique electric car companies is booming, even with some, like Tesla, experiencing shaky times. Even so, one brave outfit is planning to bring this vehicle — supposedly based on an existing electric platform already in use in the U.S. — to the show.

We’ll have more info for you Sunday.
