    No, do not adjust your screen. A near-perfect working replica of Doc Brown’s iconic time travelling machine, practically the only thing the Electric Delorean DMCEV won’t do is, well, time travel. Powered by an AC induction liquid-cooled electric motor, it will however outperform the original, reaching a top speed of 125mph, the first 60 in less than five seconds. Three and a half hour charge time for a hundred mile range isn’t bad, either.

    Sure to raise an appreciative smile even among ardent muscle-car-lovin’-petrol-heads, the Renault Twizy may be small, but it’s no shrinking violet. Bursting with character, it sports a unique open body design that houses an electric motor that will power the car for over 60 miles on full and that can be charged from a domestic outlet. Not for drivers that don’t like being stared at.
