Debuting in the early 1980s, the DeLorean DMC-12 was a head-turner with its unconventional design. Though immortalized on the silver screen as a time machine in the “Back to the Future” trilogy, the original DMC-12 lacked the power to match its futuristic looks.

This is all set to change thanks to Electrogenic’s electric makeover. The DeLorean, a brainchild of former General Motors executive John DeLorean, boasted a sleek stainless-steel body designed by famed Italian auto stylist Giorgetto Giugiaro.

The gull-wing doors added another layer of drama to the car’s look. Notably, the stainless steel construction addressed a common concern of the era – rust. This innovative design choice has contributed to the impressive fact that over 75% of DeLoreans produced are still around today.

While the gullwing doors and stainless steel body of the DeLorean DMC-12 turned heads in the 1980s, its lackluster performance left a lot to be desired.

But fear not, fans of the iconic car and clean energy! British company Electrogenic has revealed a revolutionary EV conversion kit specifically designed for the DeLorean.

This ingenious system breathes new life into the classic coupe, ditching the underwhelming gasoline engine for a heart-pounding electric powertrain. The result? A DeLorean that transforms from a slow nostalgia trip into a genuine sports car contender, ready to zip past expectations with a sustainable twist.
