The DeLorean Motor Company recently announced an all-electric DMC-12 set for production in 2013. The iconic car that gained worldwide fame in the Back to the Future film franchise is set to hit the road once more thanks to a partnership between the DeLorean Motor Company (DMC) and electric car start-up company Epic EV.

Specs on the electric DMC-12 are limited, but it's certain the car will have the look and feel of the original. Range and top speed have not been announced, but DMC is promising a zero to 60 time of around 4.9 seconds. Only time will tell whether the public is ready for an EV with an aged exterior and contemporary interior. If nothing else, this car will be a great pickup for eco-friendly collectors.
