DeLorean headquarters at Port San Antonio for new electric model

An typical 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 would develop 130 horsepower and 153 lb-ft of torque out of a V6 motor. Specifications of the new automobile will go nicely over and above that.

“Autonomous driving, when we have to, we’ll have it. Adaptive cruise manage, as lengthy as there is an off button, it is fine…Everything we do in that motor vehicle, suspension-intelligent, functionality-sensible, ease and comfort-intelligent, it’s for people today that adore to generate,” he reported.

We never know what it looks like wholly, but centered on the just one rendering launched so much, the auto will sport LED rear taillights and a large system. Extra illustrations or photos will arrive in Might or June, de Vries states people are likely to love it.

De Vries did not release pricing, availability, or say how lots of automobiles will be generated out of the gate, but he claimed they will make as couple of automobiles as they can get away with. 

Generation is expected to start off in the summer, before the to start with car or truck will debut in human being in August at the Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach front, California.

“I don’t want to have people’s dollars for the subsequent two several years ready for a vehicle. That can make no sense…there will be a pre-sequence, we be expecting that will be sold out ahead of we even go public,” de Vries provides.
