Dr. Emmett Brown once said, “if you’re going to build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?”

In the eyes of movie fans, car enthusiasts, and DeLorean Motor Company’s new CEO, the stainless-steel coupe in the Back to the Future movies is one of the most iconic cars of all time, if not, the MOST iconic.

DeLorean will be rolling out an all-new electric vehicle soon, and San Antonio will play a significant role in engineering, testing, and validating the new car.

DeLorean Motor Company’s headquarters are at Port San Antonio, but the vehicle will be manufactured at an existing plant in Canada, although there may be future plans for expanding the San Antonio plant.

There may be some prototypes of the vehicle at their headquarters, but the company is making sure the car won’t be seen in public before it makes its official debut.

There are several reasons why San Antonio was picked over other cities around the country, which is creating excitement with at least one owner of the original DeLorean.
