Other Companies Using Elise

I find it interesting and a compliment to the Lotus Elise that other companies used their platform to make their cars such as the Tesla Roadster and the Hennessey Venom.

Still a little weird looking at those cars as they are obviously based of the Elise....

The Opel Speedster and Vauxhall VX220 were also based on the Elise chassis. Detroit Electric has a prototype of an all electric car using the Elise chassis also called the SP 01 which is rumored to go into production this year.

06 Polar Blue Elise. Touring pack black leather interior, Race View mirrors, micro mirror, alarm antenna mod, bootie, BOE QS Exhaust, improved stereo, and BOE REV400 supercharger.

The Roadster was actually built at the Lotus factory. Check out the Detroit Electric SP-01 too, I believe they are about to start production.

Dodge also did a few electric prototypes based on the Elise chassis.

That statement has been true for something like a decade now it seems. They keep saying "almost there!" and then close down and then come back.
