Delorean Electric

Delorean Motor Company (DMC)Just saw this video on YouTube and thought I’d post. Rumors about an EV Delorean have been circulating for years. But it looks like they’re taking the shell of the DMC-12 (which they still seem to have a ton of new old stock), and turning it into an all electric vehicle.

Performance is listed as:

Torque: 360lb/ft 0-7,200 rpm
Horsepower: 260hp (215 kW) @ 5,000-6,000 rpm
Max RPM: 14,000
Top Speed: 125 mph
0-60 MPH: 4.9 seconds
Range: 100 miles

At $95,000+, it seems they’re pricing themselves out of most people’s budgets, though it does look like they’re targeting the same market as the Tesla S. It does boast some numbers in the ballpark of Tesla’s two-seater, but the Tesla Roadster offers a 0-60 of 3.7 seconds, 1.2 faster than the Delorean. Delorean beats the Tesla S in both max torque (200 lb/ft versus 360 lb/ft) and in horsepower (260hp versus 248hp), though the Tesla Sport model can output 288hp (albeit at a higher price tag).

I’m a fan of the Delorean, but not at $95K. Insert Back to the Future joke here.
