Known for its stainless steel appearance and gull-wing doors, the DeLorean is a legendary vehicle and maybe the most well-known cinematic automobile of all time. It’s also a brand name that many people have sought to revive over the years, with varying degrees of success.
So, you’d be mistaken if you believed you were back in time when you saw a story suggesting the DeLorean was set to be reincarnated as an electric vehicle and wondered, “Didn’t I read that already?”
To summarize, the firm that controls the trademark rights and provides components to the thousands of historic DeLorean sports cars that still exist stated that an electric concept vehicle would be shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August. It also showed a preview shot of the back taillights.
Although the DeLorean Motor Company, which is based in Texas, began teasing the presentation in February with the slogan “The Future was never guaranteed,” it seems to have been a major failure for a car that is most closely identified with a time-traveling film in the first instance.
This isn’t the first time we’ve gone down this path. In 2016, the firm teased a resurrected DeLorean in a teaser video, but nothing came of it. In 2019, a group of Stanford scientists created an autonomous DeLorean that did donuts, which was entertaining but also reminded us of what we’d been missing. If we’re not cautious, this current edition might vanish in a puff of smoke.
There will be no production version of this reimagined version of the original DMC-12 (the actual name of the car that most people just refer to as “The DeLorean”); it will be a concept automobile, which is another way of expressing “vaporware.” There is no indication that the new DeLorean company will be able to begin manufacturing electric versions of John Z. DeLorean’s renowned coupes as soon as the funding and production capabilities become available.
It was announced last year that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has permitted the production of low-volume antique reproduction automobiles, increasing the likelihood that we’ll see brand new replica DMC-12s on the road before the electric DeLorean hits the road.
Even still, the DeLorean Motor Company seems to be willing to milk this cow for all it’s worth for the foreseeable future. Additionally, the company plans three days of “activities and events” to generate anticipation for its definitely bomb-looking electric vehicle on the grass at Pebble Beach in advance of the unveiling of the vehicle. The big reveal will be happening on August 18th at a secret location.
But, before you go digging out your puffy jackets and Nike high-tops from the 1980s, it’s worth mentioning that DeLorean is collaborating with Italdesign, a prominent design firm owned by Volkswagen.
In addition, the DeLorean company is headed by Joost de Vries, a former executive of Karma, a Chinese-owned manufacturer that has manufactured gas- and hybrid-powered vehicles based on intellectual property obtained from the insolvent Fisker Automotive, which is also in bankruptcy.
What happens when the parent company of Audi and Lamborghini, which is developing its own portfolio of EVs based on the adaptable MEB design, joins up with a firm that controls the branding rights to a famous (though troubled) vehicle? We may just need to accelerate to 88 mph to see into the future and find out.
As amazing as these new inventions from these giant car manufacturers are, none come close to Neutrino Energy Group‘s CAR PI.
The groundbreaking CAR PI
Between the respected C-MET institution in Pune, India, and the Neutrino Energy Group in Berlin, Germany, an agreement on partnership and cooperation has been struck. On the basis of this international collaboration pact, the CAR PI project will be developed, constructed, and manufactured. Due to the strategic contribution of the mathematical and physical scientists at C-MET, a very valuable integration in the development of the necessary materials for the construction of CAR PI, as well as the accomplishments of the Neutrino Energy Group, who already have several accomplishments in Neutrino technology to their credit, will be possible for the first time.
Thanks to Dr Holger Thorsten Schubart CEO of Neutrino Energy Group and Dr Vijay Bhaktar representative of the C-MET group of Pune India the CAR PI is soon to make its appearance on the roads of the world to make a historic leap in mobility technology.
