The DeLorean from 'Back to the Future' returns as a luxury electric car

Fan of “Back to the Future? We also. Now, the original car that first appeared in the 1985 film ‘Back to the Future’, where it transported passengers to the year 1950, returns to our days in its most ecological and luxurious version.

Environmentally friendly

The new DeLorean, Alpha5, is presented with the silver body of the original vehicle and the iconic gullwing doors on both sides. A louvered rear window and futuristic red taillights also offer a respectable tribute to the original.

Although it will not allow us to traverse space-time, its speed goes from 0 to 100 in less than three seconds and a maximum speed of 249 kilometers per hour.

The rights to the DeLorean Motor Company, or DMC, which went bankrupt in 1982, were purchased in the 1990s by a company that adopted the same name. After several decades, the company is preparing to launch the new fully electric vehicle.

The vehicle’s battery will produce more than 100 kWh ; while the power it provides is decent, it’s nowhere near the DeLorean from the movie franchise, which used nuclear power, uranium to be exact, to produce 1.21 gigawatts of power.

“There was a huge responsibility to make sure we honor the history of the DeLorean brand, but an even bigger responsibility to curate its future,” said Troy Beetz, director of marketing for the new Delorean. “I think we did both with Alpha5.”

According to the design – like a modern coupé – the car will have capacity for four people, including the driver, with armrests between the seats, both in the front and in the rear, two interactive screens to show information to the driver, such as speed and battery level and an overall clean, minimalist design.

The DeLorean Alpha V won’t be produced until 2024 and it’s unknown how much it will cost. It will be presented at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August.
