This year DeLorean will return with an electric sportscar

~Time Busting~ Do you remember the iconic car roled in the 'Back to The Future' trilogy in the 1980s? The car, whose full name is DeLorean DMC-12 is konwn as the only one produced by an American car company called the DeLorean Motor Company (DMC) during short production periods of 1981 to 1982.

The mentioned car became popular because it used as a time machine vehicle that could fly in those mentioned 'Back to The Future' trilogy starring Michael J. Fox (as Marty McFly) and Christopher Lloyd (as Dr. Emmett L Brown). 

However, the company ever thought that the sedan had become an iconic car, even before the first sequel of the 'Back to The Future' movie was made. But unfortunately the popularity factor was not able to raise the prestige of the DMC-12 at all. The irony of this car was failed to compete in the market and the automaker was later went into bankruptcy in 1982.

Now, it is widely reported that the silver sports sedan with the distinctive gull-wing door styles will be produced again by the automaker based in Humble, Texas as an electric-powered modern sports vehicle. Actually, this news has been heard since 2012, I don't know why it took so long to realize it. 

Hopely this time the news right. As quoted of the DeLorean Motor Company official website. To revive this legendary car, it turns out that the American manufacturer not alone, it also involved a well-known Italian coachbuilder company, Italdesign

It seems that it is not just a rumor anymore and is believed to be true with the presence of a teaser video shared by DeLorean Motor Company and Italdesign through the official social media accounts of both companies. As quoted of Carscoops and Auto Express, DeLorean Motor Company is preparing for a 'comeback' in 2022 by launching an electric vehicle named DeLorean EVolved.
In the teaser video, DeLorean shows a glimpse of the silhouette of the EVolved design which is said being done in collaboration with Italdesign. In addition to doors similar to the DMC-12 owned, the electric version DeLorean sportscar also has a windshield design similar to its predecessor. The difference is that there is no more DMC logo on the grille. Instead, the latest DeLorean car will have a "V" shaped logo.

Unfortunately, neither DeLorean nor Italdesign have released more exterior details or technical specifications of the latest DMC-12 successor. But considering the EVolved will be electric, of course there is no longer a 2,894 cc Peugeot-Renault-Volvo (PRV) V6 engine with 130 hp that originally filled the engine bay. There is a possibility for the DeLorean EVolved will be use the EVX coded platform developed by Italdesign in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering.

At a glance about the EVX, Italdesign said that the platform could be developed into an electric sedan, crossover, GT, and convertible. It is also predicted to have a 104-120 kWh battery packages that is claimed to be able to give off a maximum power of 1,000 kW or 1,360 hp. Not only that, the EVX can also be configured with a 160 kWh battery so that it is claimed to be able to cover a distance of up to 1,000 kilometers.
When it is produced later, hopefully it will be successful in the market. For now on, there is nothing wrong if we just wait and see for the continuation of the news about this electric car from DMC and Italdesign. Because that's what we can do right now. See ya..!  *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DELOREAN | INSIDEEV | CARSCOOPS | AUTOEXPRESS | BLOG.DUPONTREGESTRY.COM  ]
