The name DeLorean is being brought back from the past with a new production vehicle: the DeLorean Alpha5 electric sports car.

The DeLorean Alpha5 has ditched the rear-mounted internal combustion engine of old, instead opting for a fully-electric drivetrain. The new vehicle is capable of holding four occupants; however, it will remain a two-door sports car in essence.

To that effect, the Alpha5 will complete 0-60 mph runs in a DeLorean-estimated 2.99 seconds (and for any time traveling scientists out there, 0-88 mph in 4.35 seconds). Going beyond that, the Alpha5 is estimated to top out at 155 mph. Thanks to a 100+kWh battery, the total driving range on a full charge is projected to surpass 300 miles.

The DeLorean Alpha5, on first glance, is starkly different from its distinctly-recognizable predecessor, the DMC-12; however, some key design elements have evolved with the new EV. The most obvious example is the pair of gull-wing doors, opening tall and wide for all occupants. The wheels are reminiscent of the original DMC-12’s Ital Design hardware, and the rear window is shrouded by a rear louver, too.

The sleek and distinctively-aero design language does carry into the cabin, which sports (in pre-production renderings) smooth clean surfaces with a minimalist take on controls. Two digital displays are present-- one for instrumentation and one for infotainment. Underneath the primary infotainment housing appears to be a second center stack, which contains HVAC controls and additional storage. Second row seats appear to be captain chairs, divided by their own center console.

As previously reported, the DeLorean Alpha5 is slated for an in-person reveal at the Pebble Beach Concours d ‘Elegance on August 18th and the Concept Lawn on August 21st.
