USA: Delorean Electric Car Lightens The Load

by Steve Duda, December 6th, 2011


The resurrection of the once-iconic Delorean Motor Company brand is creeping forward. In the latest news, the company announced that was teaming up with California-based electric vehicle (EV) designer and manufacturer Epic EV to manufacture the body chassis of the all-new electric Delorean. Epic EV has a wide range of electrics in its stable, including a boat and an all-terrain vehicle.

The new Delorean, tagged the DMCEV, will feature a lightweight composite body when it hits the streets sometime in 2012. Delorean says the new body is a resin-infused material designed to maximize strength and decrease the weight of this main chassis component. In a statement, Delorean said that the new chassis cuts about 200 pounds from the original’s all-aluminum body. The weight savings will allow for added battery capacity, providing the car with greater range, the company said.
