The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a federal agency in the United States that is responsible for improving traffic safety, has now made a new decision that allows smaller car manufacturers to sell replicas of cars produced at least 25 years ago.
As a result writes Delorean Motor Company that the decision may lead to the iconic Delorean car, undoubtedly best known for its role in the film Back to the Future, can make a comeback through the program.
According to DMC, the many years of waiting for the decision together with the corona pandemic has made it now unclear when a possible production can start and in what form. The internal combustion engine that the company originally looked to use is also nearing the end of its life cycle. This in combination with new regulations, a changing market and a new Biden administration in the White House has led the company to now consider converting the vehicle into an electric car.
It all really depends on the financial backing they have counted on still being available. The car manufacturer promises to tell more as soon as they can.
Delorean previously showed an electric car variant of Delorean at the New York International Auto Show 2012.
