Iconic car to be reborn as an electric car

If EVs are the future, perhaps it was inevitable the notorious DeLorean would be reimagined yet again, this time with an all-electric powertrain.

The gull-winged coupe that posed as a time-traveling machine and essentially shared marquee billing with “Back to the Future” stars Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd is being resurrected in Texas by a group known for its work with China-backed luxury EV startup Karma Automotive.

They’ve teamed with Stephen Wynne, who acquired the DeLorean branding rights in the 1990s and has made a few attempts at a revival before now.

DeLorean launched teasers around Super Bowl LVI, inviting viewers to sign up for more news on the car’s all-electric relaunch coming sometime this year.

The promo indicated the name, or at least some branding, will be DeLorean EVolved. Expected pricing was not revealed.

Production is geared for San Antonio, according to a promotional release from an economic development association for the city, which says it expects 450 new jobs.

“San Antonio boasts a growing component and vehicle manufacturing sector as well as a wide array of global advanced manufacturing operations. A deep talent pool and a strong local academic ecosystem will foster further innovation,” said Joost de Vries, CEO of DeLorean Motor Company, in the release.
