DeLorean DMC-12 EV Displayed at CES


It went from a gasoline engine, to a mini nuclear reactor, followed by Mr. Fusion. And now the DeLorean is an EV.

Doc Brown would be proud. For that matter, so would John Z. DeLorean himself. More than 30 years after his stainless steel sports car first went on sale, the DeLorean remains a part of automotive and pop culture. Since starring in the "Back to the Future" trilogy, the DeLorean is still popular with movie buffs, car fans, and time travel obsessed theoretical physicists alike. Last October, in collaboration with Epic EV, the DeLorean Motor Company unveiled their DMCEV.

In place of a mini nuclear reactor and a Mr. Fusion (not to mention a gasoline engine), lies a lithium-ion battery. All told, the car has around 260hp and a top speed of 125 mph. With it now on display at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), it seems clear that the project is moving forward. It will have a price tag of about $100,000 when it goes on sale. Certainly not cheap, but the DeLorean is still cool after all these years (spanning back to 1885, of course). Photos courtesy of Engadget.
