DeLorean is about to unveil more information about the upcoming Alpha5 EV soon.
According to a report by Electrek, DeLorean has dropped some photos of the all-new electric-vehicle model. It should be noted that the car manufacturer will announce the extra information about it on Monday, May 30 at 9:00 PM PT.
Furthermore, DeLorean also wants to showcase the Alpha5 model on Aug. 18 at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
So far, many recognize DeLorean as one of the most popular brands back in the day. During the peak season of the “Back to the Future” trilogy, the sports car from the company has been featured.
Following this appearance, the company released Medusa, commonly known as DMC-24. Previously, DeLoreans had gullwing doors on the old cars. This time, the firm will be placing electronic gullwing doors for the seating.

DeLorean EV is Pretty Impressive
If you’re planning on traveling for hundreds of miles, the upcoming DeLorean EV is capable of operating 300 miles of range. On top of that, it has a 100 kWh battery pack and a unique drive setup for a dual motor type.
It’s a speedy car that can reach an accelerating speed of 60mph. The Alpha5 EV can do this in just 2.99 seconds. Interestingly, it can run from zero to 88 mph in 4.35 seconds only.
According to IGN, the upcoming DeLorean electric car is projected to have a top speed of 155ph. That’s pretty impressive for a modern car that’s dependent on electric batteries.
For its pricing, it will most likely cost $175,000. DeLorean says that the production for this model will take place in the next two years at the new DMC facility in San Antonio, Texas.
In the meantime, the specs of the Alpha5 are currently listed for the “Base Performance Model.”
Why DMC Cars Are at Top Quality
Per IGN’s story, the new EV was made possible thanks to the collaboration of DeLorean with ItalDesign by Giorgetto Giugiaro.
The same report says that the long-time running car under DMC will not rust easily because of its stainless steel exterior. Additionally, the upcoming car could potentially feature a 250hbp twin-turbo of PRV V6.
This might mean that the company will upgrade its engine to cope with modern usage. From 1981 to 1983, it was said that nearly 9,000 DeLorean cars were manufactured.
As of press time, 6,000 units are reportedly functioning up to this day.
If you want to know more about the upcoming model, you can visit the official site of Delorean to watch its live stream, which will happen 16 hours from now.
