Now here's an old story. Back in 2008, Zap revived the Detroit Electric name, a name that had cachet for building and selling around 13,000 electric vehicles in the early 20th Century. But, in 2009, after losing the Zap connection, the Detroit Electric revival kind of faded away, at least in public. Today, almost out of nowhere, the brand bounced back. That's because Detroit Electric just announced it will have its headquarters in the Fisher Building in Detroit.
