Detroit Electric seats

I'm hoping this is the right place to start a thread about this.
Detroit Electric SP:01 picks up where the Tesla Roadster left off
So I see this new car and I'm thinking it might be a good source for seats. Can we get some people on figuring out who Detroit electric is using for a supplier?

Aren't they just Lotus seats with their colors/logo?

The wheels look like "Final Edition" wheels.

While it looks slick, I don't think it would accommodate for good air flow to the radiator.

Maybe even a smallish run of cars (999 - 2500) will create a better supply on few items, like windshields. The glass manufacturer may make some extras that are available for our cars. I don't need one yet but have read they are sometimes hard to find and pricey.

Remember Laszlo Toth, the man who smashed Michelangelo's Pieta with a hammer back in 1972? That's the sort of thing that goes through my mind when I look at this car.

Just moved to Phoenix, anyone else here?

Ooooh pick me pick me!

When is the car likely to come out? (ball park) How do you guys acquire each chassis for US production? How many elise parts do you leave on the car?

2005 CO Elise: stage II CLF exhaust, B&M shifter, 5.25"/6.5" speakers, footwell lighting, RLS side mirrors, and 2 Dartholders (caffeine injection improves performance)
Uncage your garage queen and quit being a pansy. Daily drive it!
