DeLorean Alpha 5 First Look Photos Revealed With Its Glorious Gull Wings

DeLorean Alpha 5

DeLorean Motor Company has revealed the first pictures of the Alpha 5 electric vehicle (EV), the company’s attempt at resurrecting the DeLorean name in an all-electric form. Staying true to the classic ‘80s-era DeLorean known for its appearance in Back to the Future, the Alpha 5 comes with those iconic gull-wing doors and can reach 60mph in about 2.99 seconds.

Before we get into the details, it’s worth noting the company behind the Alpha 5 isn’t really the same one behind the original DeLorean vehicles — that company perished in 1982. An unrelated Texas-based company, which supplies replacement parts to the owners of vintage DeLorean vehicles, took up the rights to the DeLorean brand and teased an all-electric revival in April.

The Alpha 5 could come with a 100kWh battery, delivering an estimated 300 miles of range and a top speed of 155mph. DeLorean shows these specs will belong to the “base” performance model, but there isn’t any word on other possible performance levels or pricing.

While the Alpha 5 does indicate its heritage to its gas-powered predecessor with gull-winged doors and a sloped design, it trades an angular look for smoother curves and four seats instead of two. Despite some obvious differences, DeLorean partnered with Italdesign, the same Volkswagen-owned design team that helped develop the look of the 1981 DMC-12, and its take on the electrified version ushers it into the future.

DeLorean will reveal the Alpha 5 to the public on its website tomorrow morning, but you can sign up to get a sneak peek at its pictures and specs right now. DeLorean’s set to reveal the Alpha 5 in Pebble Beach on August 21st.
