The attempts to relaunch the DeLorean are countless - now the cloth is to be aired at the Monterey Autoweek 2022 in the third week of August. After the new edition has so far been presented virtually, Pebble Beach should be the befitting starting signal for a new era. The next attempt to restart and this time the chances seem better than ever before that the legendary athlete from the film trilogy "Back to the Future" will get a similar future again. This time without Michael J. Fox and the flux compensator, but with a modern electric drive and a lot of inventive talent from a US start-up. What has remained are the significantly larger gullwing doors and a design that is worth seeing, albeit this time much more pleasing. Instead of anything but convincing Renault engine, there is a drive that should keep what the design promises. Delorean still keeps the exact engine performance to itself, but promises driving performance that leaves nothing to be desired. 0 to 100 km/h in little more than three seconds, a top speed of 250 km/h and an electric range of almost 500 kilometers, which does not have a flux compensator, but a cW value of 0.23 and a battery with a capacity of 100 kWh . For all film fans, Delorean gives the acceleration time to the time jump from the Hollywood flick - 0 to 88 mph / 145 km/h - as 4.35 seconds.
The Alpha 5 should come onto the market in the coming year - it is said again. Wait and see whether the Delorean will make its often-vaunted and accordingly proclaimed new start this time. "To understand where we're going, we need to know where we've been," adds Troy Beetz, "we have a responsibility to explore and honor the history of the brand while shaping its future." whether Marty McFly aka Michael J. Fox and Dr. Emmett L. Brown aka Christopher Lloyd come to Pebble Beach in the time machine from the future or the past to take a close look at the new Delorean entire family of new electric models.
