The DeLorean Motor Company has finally shown its newest product, the Alpha5 pure electric vehicle, after months of anticipation. The all-new Alpha5 is an incredibly attractive electric vehicle with a cutting-edge, futuristic appearance. The new coupe keeps some of its predecessor’s defining features, such as the massive Italdesign-styled top-hinged gullwing doors and back glass louvres.
On the outside, the all-new Alpha5 has a two-tone finish and a swoopy roofline reminiscent of the Back to the Future trilogy’s car. The new EV has a streamlined front fascia with narrow LED headlights that are reminiscent of existing EVs. In the bottom half of the front bumper, it obtains the famous V form of the original Delorean. The Alpha5’s sculpted bonnet also appears to feature a small aperture, which could be for aerodynamic efficiency reasons.
When it comes to the EV’s side profile, we can see that it has a set of enormous, intricate-looking wheels as well as some strong body lines. We must also deal with the elephant in the room, which is the presence of its massive doors. Two struts will help the iconic gullwing doors open and support their massive size. When the gullwing doors are closed, the Alpha5 is 4,995 mm (196.6 in) long, 2,044 mm (80.4 in) wide, and 1,370 mm (53.9 in) tall, making it much larger than its predecessor.
Moving on to the back of the car, it includes the louvred back window, which, as previously stated, pays homage to its ancestor. The Alpha5’s rear LED taillamps are just as sleek as the front ones, stretching out from one side to the other. The lower end of the bumper has a V shape similar to the front, as well as two diffusers.
The Alpha5’s inside is as stunning, with a lovely, clean, and unobtrusive layout. It features a futuristic spaceship interior with a big screen directly in front of the driver and a flat-bottomed steering wheel. It also sports a basic center console with an infotainment system that appears to float, as well as two cup holders directly below the screen and its controls. The Alpha5’s AC vents appear to be disguised to maintain a clean appearance.
DeLorean has been tight-lipped about the Alpha5’s EV powertrain, although it claims the car will achieve 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.4 seconds and top out at an electronically regulated 150 mph (241 km/h). According to EPA estimates, it has a battery pack with a capacity of more than 100 kWh, allowing it to travel more than 300 miles (483 kilometres). All of these characteristics are for the “basic performance model,” meaning that speedier versions will be released in the future. The manufacture will be outsourced to Italy, while the powertrain will be supplied by a UK provider, according to the business.
