The Prototype Electric DeLorean Gets a Test Drive

by Andrew Price

August 15, 2012

Wynne claims the prototype can do 0-60 mph in under five seconds and tops out above 100 mph, but Farah seems surprised when it gets above 70 mph. That said, the glowing motor compartment in the back may make up for any performance shortcomings.

Wynne hopes to bring the electric DeLorean to production in mid-2013. That version, he says, will cost about $95,000 and have a 200-mile range. The largest Tesla Model S, for comparison, has an official range of 265 miles. Talk is cheap in the world of futuristic electric cars (see the Aptera), but this one would be especially fun to see happen, despite the inevitable flood facileĀ Back to the Future references.
