The car from the science-fiction movie Back to the Future is getting a new makeover. Fittingly, the Delorean, a model that was seen in the movie with the technology of time travel, will be the recipient of a new technology: electricity. The car is expected to be available as an electric car in 2013.
The car will be the result of the joint effort between the Delorean Motor Company and the company, Epic EV. The company Epic EV is involved in creating forward-thinking, new technologies for cars.
Their projects include on-road and off-road electric vehicles, as well as water-based vehicles. Also in Epic EV’s plans, is the reinvention of the microbus as an electric vehicle. The Delorean in Back to the Future gained its starring role in 1985, more than twenty-five years ago.
It is an iconic image for a beloved story and many people would love to get their hands on a time traveling car. It may not time travel, but would you buy an electric Delorean?
