The DeLorean DMC-12, the car made famous in the Back to the Future trilogy, will be back on the market thanks to the newly resurrected DeLorean Motor Company -- only this time the vehicle will be fully electric. Insert Flux Capacitor joke here.
From Jalopnik's article after test-driving the car, the DMCEV actually sounds quite technologically promising:
I was told, to really appreciate it, I had to drive it. So I did.
"Turn the key until you hear the click, then turn the center dial over to 'D'" DMC president Stephen Wynne tells me. Honestly, I'm still buzzing from the sensation of closing the stainless steel gullwing door just moments earlier. I twist the key and rotate the surprisingly weighty metal dial. Silence. I press the gas pedal, which, true to form with any 1980s exotic, has so much resistance it's more like a piece of gym equipment. Press harder, and we silently glide forward.
The electric DMC-12 will have about 260 HP and a pretty impressive range between 100 and 160 Km.
