DeLorean Alpha5 debuts with 4 seats and 480+ km range


The famous DeLorean brand is returning with Alpha5 electric coupe with some bold claims. We don’t have the complete details just yet, but you can expect some additional information in mid-August when the car makes its public debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d ‘Elegance. DeLorean is reportedly building only 88 units, with production commencing sometime in 2024. Production will most likely be outsourced to a contract manufacturer, which of course, would be a sensible decision.

As with the original DeLorean (DMC-12), the Alpha5 is also designed by folks at Italdesign. I’m not entirely sure if the team has tried their best in incorporating the styling cues from the original car, besides the obvious gullwing doors, but there’s also the louver-like rear windscreen and the design of the wheels—to an extent. The doors are a lot wider here, because of course, unlike the original DeLorean, the successor has two extra seats.

There’s also the Alpha5 Launch Edition with what appears to be an exclusive exterior paint finish and interior theme. Notice that the seats have contrast touches that match the exterior paint.

For those who’d like to know the dimensions, the Alpha5 measures 4995 mm long, 2044 mm wide and 1370 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2300 mm.

Inside, there are four seats as mentioned before, but it doesn’t appear that the rear seats offer as much legroom as the Gemera. But again, this is not a Gemera-class vehicle. The cockpit features a contemporary design with a large driver display, a narrow air vent that stretches across the dashboard, and of course, a floating centre console with an integrated touchscreen.

As mentioned already, DeLorean has not shared the full juicy details yet. However, the company is estimating a range of over 300 miles (482+ km) from a 100+ kWh battery pack. Estimated drag co-efficient is claimed to be 0.23 Cd. Estimated 0-60 mph (96.5 km/h) time is 2.99 seconds and estimated top speed is 155 mph (250 km/h).
