The first images of the Alpha 5 electric vehicle, the brand's attempt at resurrecting the DeLorean name in an all-electric form, have been revealed. The Alpha 5 can reach 60mph in 2.98 seconds and can go 88mph in 4.35 seconds, if you want.
The company behind the Alpha 5 isn't the same as the one behind the original DeLorean vehicles, which went bankrupt in 1982. An unrelated Texas-based company, which supplies replacement parts to the owners of vintage DeLorean vehicles, snapped up the rights to the brand and teased an all-electric revival in April.
300 miles of range and a top speed of 155mph are what the Alpha 5 could offer. There isn't any word on other possible performance tiers or pricing.
While the Alpha 5 does hint at its heritage to its gas-powered predecessor with gull-winged doors and a sloped design, it trades an angular look for smoother curves and four seats instead of two. The 1981 DMC-12 was developed by Italdesign, the same team that helped develop the look of the electric version of the car.
The Alpha 5 will be shown to the public tomorrow morning, but you can sign up to get a sneak peek at its images and specifications right now. We will have to wait a bit longer to see the car in action, as the Alpha 5 will be revealed on August 21st.
