Queen's University Belfast are soon to be building a DeLorean EV!
From our Facebook Page:
"The QUB Electric DeLorean Project is run by the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Queen's University Belfast. This project will teach students about the electrical and electronic technology used in electric vehicles through the conversion of a 1981 DeLorean sports car to use electric propulsion (electric motor and batteries).
The car will feature in a STEM educational programme to be developed for schools across Northern Ireland.
The DeLorean sports car was built in Dunmurry, 5 miles from Belfast, and had an iconic starring role in the Back to the Future films. The way we see it, if you're going to build an electric car, you may as well do it with some style.
This project is principally sponsored by Northern Ireland Electricity and has received financial backing from the Queen's Annual Fund."
We've seen it done before but we want to go above and beyond anything done previously, so I'm asking you guys for whatever ideas you may have and would like to see in an EV (of course, we'll have the obligatory Flux Capacitor) like voice control for example.
Thanks for the input!

If you've more to add to this let me know, and I'll put it down
It's easier to adjust stuff in the design stage than later!
