Yes, you read that right. An all-electric DeLorean made its debut at the New York Auto Show last week and not just as a cool concept, but with an actual plan for production -- and soon. According to Autoblog, DeLorean Motor Company president Stephen Wynne said the DMCev should hit the market in early 2013.

The production model will feature a so-called "Flux Power" 32-kWh lithium iron phosphate battery pack and will have a max speed of 125 mph and a range of 100 miles. The EV will be able to go from 0 - 60 mph in under six seconds and the price tag is expected to be a steep $95,000. The carmaker is currently testing different motor/inverter combinations for the EV and has about 200 pounds to shave off the prototype before a production model is ready for the road. When those problems have been solved, the DMCev will be built in Houston, TX.
