A few months ago, DeLorean teased that the legendary car company would finally start production of a new vehicle, but it was going to be an electric chariot.
Today, DMC has finally revealed this new electric DeLorean, now called the Alpha 5. What followed was a series of computer-generated images of the car, but what DeLorean is chasing looks promising. There are hints of the 1981 classic vehicle, along with a lot, maybe too much, streamlining.
The Alpha 5 is sleek like many concept vehicles are. The gull-wing doors are back, but many of the other signatures of the stainless steel original are long gone. Had I not seen the name on the front and back of these images, I would not have guessed that this was the latest DeLorean automobile.
Aside from several generic design choices, the DeLorean Alpha 5 is perfectly serviceable as an electric car. The company expands on the design choices on the Alpha 5’s dedicated webpage:
Designed with purpose. DeLorean has confidence and a compelling presence. We will continue to apply our rebellious DNA to shape our vehicles and constantly push the boundaries of what’s possible. We are writing our legacy in real-time. Instinctively adapting to the future with a heightened curated experience. Rooted in counterculture we confidently embrace the unexpected.
We create an environment to encourage human experience and connections. The balance between Artificial support and Human control. Intelligent intuitive human design and craftsmanship.
For those skeptical about just how real the Alpha 5 is, the car will allegedly be revealed during the Pebble Beach Concours d ‘Elegance award ramp in Carmel, California, on August 21st, 2022. General admission tickets for the events are $425 per person.
