New DeLorean EV Revealed; Now All It Needs Is A Flux Capacitor

This is heavy! The DeLorean Motor Company (DMC) has revealed, via renders, its upcoming DeLorean luxury electric vehicle (EV), and of course, it has the iconic gullwing doors we’ve all come to love from the original version in the Back to the Future movies, and it looks amazing!

All that’s missing is a flux capacitor!

This new DMC should not be confused with the original DeLorean company of the same name, which went bankrupt in 1982. Though it’s no longer around, the ideas it had, of an ultra-modern looking vehicle are still very much alive today.

This new DeLorean EV, revealed in two colours, aims for a top speed of 155mph (250kph), with 0 to 60 in 2.99 seconds, and 0 to 88 (LOVE IT!) in 4.35 seconds, for some serious s#!t! It packs a 100kWh battery with 300 miles range on a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive setup. The price is expected to be at US$175,000, and production should begin at DMC’s San Antonio, Texas facility in the next few years.

That’s right – the car will only be ready in the future. Well, maybe we aren’t ready for it yet, but our kids are gonna love it!

The DeLorean EV was revealed early to people who signed up for early access on the DeLorean website. The public reveal will occur on 1 June, 12pm SGT (31 May, 9pm PT), with a formal showing at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance car show on 18 August.
