The new DeLorean car company last week unveiled a teaser for its all-electric concept, temporarily known as Evolved. The plan was to unveil the coupe that would take Delorian into the future … in fact, Thursday, August 18 at Pebble Beach. A shout-out prompted authorities in San Antonio, Texas, to move to a May 31 release date. The date change has got us as well as a new teaser still on the back of the car, but with the rear light bars exposed as three-high stacked on the edges.
You asked We heard. We’re counting on the first complete look of the brand new DeLorean.

We should make it clear that the clothing is completely different from the classic DMC of Houston, Texas, the New Delaurian Motor Company in San Antonio. The DeLorean cover we’ve covered since the Low Volume Vehicle Manufacturing (LVVM) Act was enacted in Congress in 2015 is rumored to be a modern version of the Vintage DMC-12, a twin-turbo V6 power. When the LVVM became law earlier this year, the industry landscape and the classic DMC went ahead. On top of that, Texas bans manufacturers from owning dealerships in the state, so Classic DMC has to split to make and sell its modern cars. New DeLorean plans to become a full-line carmaker, with several key executives coming from action.
We spoke to James Esper, VP of Classic DMC, who told us, “The new DeLorian news that has been in the news since the Super Bowl ad in February is a clear sheet of paper design. It shares some DNA with the original DeLorian, but it’s a clear piece of paper. . ” Regarding the connection between the two organizations, he said, “The owner of Classic DMC has an ownership partnership in the new company … he is also a consultant, but he is not involved in the day-to-day management of what they do there. In Houston, we will keep the classic DMC logo and we We will continue to focus 100% of our efforts. “
It is possible that the Evolved does not make too much connection with the DMC-12 outside of a silver paint job and glowing door. We’re going to assume that the flesh of the powertrain is similarly behind the cockpit. The new car was written by Giorgetto Giugiaro, co-founder of Italdesign, Design House, who is responsible for the original DMC-12 design. The powertrain remains a mystery, but we know its modular EV powertrain will be taken from Williams Advanced Engineering.

The company’s CEO, Just de Vries, mentioned in a recent podcast that Delorian would tease other interpretations of the old DMC-12 before releasing his car on Pebble Beach. With a compact timeline, it’s not clear what May 31 will show, but it could be quite spectacular.
