USA: Back to the future as DeLorean goes electric

The DeLorean Motor Company headquarters in Houston, Texas is something of a Mecca to owners of the DMC-12.

In the reception, glass cabinets are packed with paraphernalia from the original DeLorean factory in Dunmurry, Northern Ireland.

The DeLorean’s gull-wing doors still have the power to impress
On the wall, there is an original DMC-12 door panel, covered in a roughly scrawled note. It reads: “This is the last right hand door to be made at DMC… The end of a dream. Or is it?”

Prophetic words perhaps, because after nearly 30 years since the factory closed, the DeLorean is about to be given a new lease of life as an electric car.

Due to hit the market in early 2013, the company says the DMC-EV will cost $90,000 (£57,000) and is aiming for a first production run of 300 vehicles.

Stephen Wynn is the Liverpool-born chief executive of the DeLorean Motor Company. He moved to the US 30 years ago to work as a mechanic and began specialising in DMC-12s.
