DeLorean Motor Company has given the public its first complete look at the highly anticipated Alpha5, their all-new EV.
Gallery photos explore the coupe’s exterior and interior, revealing sleek lines, classic louvers, and DeLorean’s iconic gull-wing doors. Estimated specifications include a range of 300+ miles, a battery of 100+kWh, and electronically limited top speeds of 155 mph.
The Alpha5 was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro’s ItalDesign studio (which also designed the original DeLorean).
Taking design cues from the past to inspire the future, the new EV visibly showcases its iconic DNA. “The Alpha5 is a representation of the past 40 years of DeLorean,” said Troy Beetz, Chief Marketing Officer of DeLorean Motor Company. “There was this enormous responsibility to make sure we honored the history of the DeLorean brand, but an even greater responsibility in curating its future…I think we did both with the Alpha5.”
The DeLorean was made famous by the Back to the Future series of films. Its creator John DeLorean also had a colorful history, having managed the development of American muscle cars like the Pontiac GTO in the ’60s and ’70s. He was arrested in 1982 and charged with cocaine trafficking, but the trial ended in a not guilty charge.
The new DeLorean company will reveal the Alpha5 to the general public tomorrow morning on its website.
