The DeLorean DMC is set to 2022 comeback as an all-electric sports car, with an upgraded version of the Back to the Future hero due to be unveiled later this year
DeLorean confirmed the arrival of a new electric vehicle later this year with the teaser video below, which was shared on Twitter and YouTube.
The Future was never promised. Reimagine today.

Although the original DeLorean Motor Company no longer exists, there is still a Texas-based DeLorean Motor Company that is unrelated to the car’s original manufacturer. According to Autocar, the company was founded by British engineer Stephen Wynne, who purchased the rights to the original company’s name and trademark in 1995.
The DeLorean EVolved will be the name of the reinvented DMC. However, it’s unclear whether it’ll be an entirely new design or simply a conversion kit to electrify the original DMC-12.
The same video was also published in an Italdesign birthday tweet, implying that Giorgetto Giugiaro’s design house is participating in the project.
54 years YOUNG and a fantastic kick-off birthday present to face the next half a century!
Happy birthday #Italdesign, keep rocking! #delorean pic.twitter.com/SAjjwPXQFz
