Saleen Automotive, an American specialty manufacturer of high performance vehicles, confirmed that the company is currently in development to produce an electric car for eventual distribution and sale.
“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,” stated 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.”
No further details on Saleen’s electric car project have been revealed, though the company plans to give an update early next year by revealing a scale model.
“I’m not prepared to give all the details of our electric car project yet but I can tell you that it is unlike anything currently in the marketplace,” added Saleen. “Throw out your pre-conceived notions and expectations. This vehicle will be revolutionary in its aesthetics and mechanics.”
