While the company is not yet public about its plans for the rebirth of the DeLorean brand, its CEO has revealed that the company has plans to build an electric car based on the classic model. The company has not yet revealed its funding sources or plans for the Alpha 5. CEO Joost de Vries, a former Karma Automotive executive, is scheduled to speak at an EV festival in Long Beach, California, on November 14. At the event, de Vries is expected to talk about the company’s future electrification ambitions.
While the DeLorean electric car has long hinted at building an electric vehicle, this was not confirmed until this month. The company, based in Humble, Texas, is best known for selling refurbished vintage DeLorean DMC-12 sports cars. The company recently acquired the remaining inventory, trademarks, and logos from DeLorean and promised to build electrified DeLoreans.
The DeLorean electric car Alpha5 EV has two doors and an open cockpit design. The seats are accessible from the doors, and the car will reach 60 mph in 2.9 seconds. It is expected to reach speeds of up to 155 mph, so it is not quite as fast as a Tesla. Nonetheless, this car will be a worthy contender in the EV market, and its price tag will be limited by current speculation.
The Alpha5 concept car was conceived by Joost de Vries, a veteran of the Italdesign design firm. It has many LED lights throughout its design, and gull-wing-like lights appear in the front fender. The car’s sleek silhouette evokes the Back to the Future trilogy, as does the V-shaped LED on the bottom of the front bumper. At the rear, there is a chunky rear diffuser and retractable spoiler.
The Alpha5 is likely to be a much larger car than its legendary antecedent. Drawings show a length of nearly 197 inches, just shy of the Model S. The DeLorean Alpha5 EV will not be road-registered and is intended for track use only. The Alpha5 could also pave the way for the launch of at least four new DeLorean electric car models in the future.
54% more powerful than a stock DeLorean
The DMC-12 was offered for sale in the U.S. between 1981 and 1983. Built in Northern Ireland, the DeLorean Motor Company only sold 8,535 examples in total. All of these cars featured a V6 engine, developed by Peugeot, Volvo, and Renault. The car had 130 horsepower, but the owners made a few modifications. These changes resulted in cars with more than twice as much power as the stock DeLorean electric car.
The DeLorean DMC-12 is 54% more powerful than a stock model. Jacob modified the car using AutoCAD software. Then, he sent his designs to a custom-cut metal company in Reno, NV. Nearly everything on the car was custom-cut metal, including the motor mount, which holds a 648-pound Nissan Leaf motor. Jacob aimed to make the DMC-12 as efficient as possible by improving the efficiency of its electrical system.
The DMC’s records did not survive, so the production figures are unreliable. Owners have been able to piece together approximate numbers based on the details in the vehicle. The DeLorean’s unusual construction details, such as gull-wing doors and unpainted stainless-steel body panels, are recognizable features. The rear-mounted engine and unusual gull-wing doors were some of its distinguishing features.
The new DeLorean doesn’t appear in any Back to the Future movies, but the company has a ton of film opportunities. We can only hope that it will appear in at least one movie in the near future. Meanwhile, the concept images are still a mystery. If this happens, it would be a real thrill to own an all-electric DeLorean.
256 lbs lighter than a stock DeLorean
The production DeLorean DMC-12 is 256 lbs lighter than a stock model. This is the result of a design by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the man responsible for many iconic cars, including the Volkswagen Golf and the Fiat Panda. It is also lighter than many contemporary luxury cars, including the Corvette and the Ferrari of the same era.
The DMC-12 is capable of reaching a speed of 88 mph, which is a bit high for U.S. models, which only have a Federally mandated speedometer that stretches to 85 mph. The Canadian and European versions use an alternative speedometer, which ended up about three miles short of the actual time travel speed. Still, it’s a great car, and Jacob’s work shows why the original DeLorean electric car is so beloved.
Despite the lack of horsepower, the new coupe is 256 lbs lighter than a stock model. Its weight also makes it significantly easier to move. Because of the smaller engine, the car is 256 lbs lighter than a standard DeLorean electric car. The weight difference isn’t noticeable, but it’s enough to make an impressive statement on the highway. If you’re considering purchasing one of these cars, make sure you shop around for a model with the right balance. It is estimated that it will be cheaper than a similar model if the car is built better.
155 MPH top speed
The electric car has an impressive range and should reach 155 MPH, but how long will the battery last? According to reports, a 100kWh battery pack should be enough for about 300 miles of driving. The car’s dual-motor all-wheel drive system will make acceleration fast. The DeLorean EV is projected to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in 2.99 seconds.
The DeLorean Alpha5 electric car will be able to reach a top speed of 155 mph and go from 0-60 mph in under three seconds. The car will have a battery capacity of over 100kWh and will have a range of approximately 300 miles. It is expected to hit the road by 2024. DeLorean Motor Company was founded in 1975 by John DeLorean, the designer behind the Pontiac Firebird and GTO. Sadly, the company went bankrupt seven years later.
The company that’s building the car is not the same as the original DeLorean. The original DeLorean went out of business in 1982 and was bought by a Texas company. This company teased an all-electric revival in April. The Alpha 5 will be built with a 100 kWh battery and hit 155 mph. The company has not disclosed pricing or other performance tiers.
The new DeLorean Motor Company has announced the Alpha 5 electric car, based on the iconic gull-winged cars from the “Back to the Future” trilogy. The car will hit 60 mph in 2.99 seconds and hit a top speed of 155 mph. It will seat four people and be able to carry as much as 55 pounds of cocaine.
2.99 second 0-60 mph time
The DeLorean Motor Company has revealed the first images of its Alpha 5 electric car. The car is based on the classic ’80s-era DeLorean, and has gull-wing doors to match its storied past. The new car is expected to reach 60mph in just under two seconds, and has a top speed of 155 miles per hour. A press release also stated that the 0-60 time is less than two seconds.
The new car is expected to have a 100-kWh battery pack, which should give it excellent range. The car will also have dual motors with all-wheel drive. The company has not yet announced a price, nor has it given any details about its production schedule, but Autocar has reported that the company will only produce 88 track-only models for the launch edition.
While the new car has a distinctly retro design, it still feels like it could come straight out of a Time Machine. The DeLorean electric car EV has a top speed of 155 mph and a range of three hundred and thirty miles. While it might seem like a far cry from the time machine that we used to imagine when we were children, it’s a car that could become a reality. And it will be incredibly affordable at $175,000, and production is expected to begin in San Antonio within a couple of years.
The new DeLorean electric car EV is a hybrid version of the classic automobile. The car features a sleek body design, with gull-wing doors similar to those used in the original DMC-12. It also features beautiful louvers and a sleek LED taillight bar. The new car is larger than its real predecessor, the DMC-12. When the production model is complete, it will be released to the public at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
