CORONA, California — Saleen Automotive confirmed it is developing an electric car for "eventual distribution and sale."

It is the latest chapter in the comeback of Saleen, who reclaimed his brand name earlier this year and launched a public company, Saleen Automotive Inc.

"I'm not prepared to give all the details of our electric vehicle project yet but I can tell you that it is unlike anything currently in the marketplace," said Steve Saleen, Saleen Automotive CEO, in a statement on Tuesday. "Throw out your pre-conceived notions and expectations. This vehicle will be revolutionary in its aesthetics and mechanics."

He added: "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."

Saleen, a former racecar driver, rose to fame in the Motor City by producing Ford's high-end GT and helping to build Chrysler's iconic Viper sports car.

Edmunds says: Steve Saleen has made a name with heritage models. Now he looks to the future.
