想いを乗せてひた走る

「デロリアンEV化計画」リーダー

―藤井智康―

 

広島県出身の藤井さんは、1993年から広島市の会社に勤務する傍ら、環境問題について学ぶ過程で電気自動車の存在を知ります。

ジウジアーロ氏のデザインと映画「Back to the Future」の影響でデロリアン好きになり、「どうせEVをつくるならカッコいい方がいい」と「デロリアンEV化計画」を2007年にスタート。事故で不動状態になったデロリアンを譲り受け、Co2削減を目的としたEV普及促進、使い捨てにしない文化のあり方提案を目的に、仲間とともに作業を続け、2009年3月11日に電気自動車化を達成しました。

その後もアップグレードを続け、2016年7月には、急速充電にも対応。今後は再生可能エネルギー促進などをテーマに、活動を続けています。

幼い頃に影響を受けたものは誰しもあるはず。心の引き出しに閉まったままの夢やロマン。彼の経験から得たアイディアはその扉を開くきっかけを与えてくれるかもしれません。

[Speaker Introduction] Tomoyasu Fujii

The 8 speakers of TEDxHimi 2017 have been decided.

The details of final 4 speakers serve as the last announcement, following the first 4 speakers.

This time, we introduce Mr. Fujii.

He drives at full speed, thinking ahead.

The leader of “the venture to convert the iconic vehicle into an electronic car”

– Tomoyasu Fujii –

Originally from Hiroshima prefecture, Tomoyasu Fujii came to know of electric-powered cars through learning about environmental issues after working at a company in Hiroshima City in 1993.

A fan of the design work of Giorgetto Guigiaro, as well as the motion picture “Back to the Future”, he fell in love with the DeLorean. He thought if he were to make EV, it’d be better to make a cool one. He then set off on a venture to convert the iconic vehicle into an electronic car in 2007.

After receiving a base grade out-of-service DeLorean from a car accident, he continued his work with his friends for the promotion of EV in order to reduce CO2 emissions and suggest the importance of nondisposable culture. Finally, he successfully completed the electronic conversion of the vehicle with his friends on March 11, 2009.

Continuing to make refinements even after the vehicle’s initial completion, he has installed a fast charge upgrade to his DeLorean in July 2016. He will continue his activities under the theme of the promotion of renewable energy from now on.

Everybody must have something which has influenced them when they were young. Your dream or romanticized idea has been confined in a drawer at your heart. Drawing an idea from his experience may become a cue to open the drawer.
