The DeLorean Motor Company announces that, with the passing of the "Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Act" (H.R. 2675) which allows companies to produce a limited number of replicas of older vehicles, it will produce DeLorean replicas for 2017. The vehicle will maintain its iconic look but sport modern and more enviromentally friendly motors. Back to the Future fans will be delighted.
The vehicles must meet current Clean Air Act standards for the model year in which they are produced. The new law allows the low volume vehicle manufacturer to meet the standards by installing an engine and emissions equipment produced by another automaker (GM, Ford, etc.) for a similar EPA-certified vehicle configuration or a crate engine that has been granted a California Air Resources Board (CARB) Executive Order (EO). This reasonable regulatory reform will also spur innovation, including advances in alternative-fuel and green vehicle technologies.
In anticipation of this legislation, DeLorean Motor Company has been working for some time to identify a supplier for engines and other parts that must be reproduced to facilitate this production for 2017. A number of hurdles exist before production can begin, and we're still early on in this process of determining the feasibility of moving forward. Further updates will be posted here.
