After more than 35 years, the legendary DeLorean brand is returning with a new vehicle, the so-called Alpha 5 , with which it wants to revive its name after decades in silence.

The vehicle, which will go on sale in August, is completely electric and will maintain details that will remind us of the classic models that we saw in ‘Back to the Future’, but with its particularities that will convince more than one avant-garde in the industry.

The Alpha 5 can reach 141 km/h in under five seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h.

The DeLorean will feature a 100kWh battery capacity, giving you a range of up to 300 miles on each charge.

The company indicates that these specifications will belong to the “base” performance model, but there is no information on other possible levels of performance or prices.

DeLorean is set to reveal Alpha 5 in full at Pebble Beach on August 21.

DeLorean, but with a significant change

The company behind the Alpha 5 is not actually the same company behind the original DeLorean vehicles : that company disappeared in 1982.

An unrelated Texas-based company that supplies replacement parts to owners of vintage DeLoreans acquired the rights to the brand and sparked an all-electric revival in April.
