The DeLorean Motor Company has finally unveiled its next DeLorean EV, a totally new version of the iconic stainless steel-clad sports vehicle with gull-wing doors, starring in the Back to the Future film series and first unveiled in February (we told you about it here).
The first lucky viewers of this new renaissance were users who had signed up for early access on the Official site of the company. The full "public" reveal will take place tomorrow (May 31) at 21pm PT (ie 00am EDT on June 00), while the first "public" release of the DeLorean EV will be at the popular Pebble Beach auto show on August 00. .
The new electric DMC takes up the concept of the "Medusa" sedan on which the original DeLorean Motor Company began development before failing in 1982. Although the Medusa, officially known internally as the DMC-24, was to have had four independent winged doors. seagull, the DeLorean EV will only have two, but they will exhibit both rows of seats.
Streets? Where do we go ... no, I'm kidding. The roads to this DeLorean EV still serve
Any data on the new DeLorean EV? 100 kWh battery pack which should provide a range of approximately 480 kilometers (300 miles) and power a dual engine and all-wheel drive configuration. From 0 to 100km / h (60mph) in 2,99 seconds, maximum speed of 250km / h (155mph). The price exclaims "Great Jupiter!", Will be around 175.000 euros. And it's the base model, also known as the Alpha5.
In short: the revived DeLorean has resumed the relationship with Giorgetto Giugiaro's ItalDesign (and it shows: it is very pleasant, I am not saying it out of parochialism). After all, Giugiaro also designed the original one!
The "old" DMC made history with interesting solutions, including the stainless steel exterior (now taken from Elon Musk's Cybertruck). It would have continued to impress with an already planned 250hp version, but it didn't survive long enough to enjoy its consecration in the Robert Zemeckis film.
Will the new edition be able to have a similar success? Maybe to appear in a (lucky, I hope) sequel to the famous trilogy? We will see.
