Great news from the New York International Auto Show. It has been revealed that the cult vehicle the DMC DeLorean going into production with a launch scheduled for early 2013.
Gone is the gas tank and in comes a power plug, connected with a socket hidden behind the front grill. The good news is that it is confirmed this converted DMC-12 will be going into production with a launch scheduled for early 2013. At the back of the vehicle, the conventional engine is replaced by a 32-kWh lithium iron phosphate battery pack, rated to produce 125 miles per hour top speed and a range of 100 miles. An investment of $95,000 is required to drive this DMCev home but perhaps they will find a way to upgrade it to a time machine in the not so distant future.
