3-wheelers in the news.

February 2008 - Zap Alias

Created by Zap, the Zap Alias is a new electric 3-wheeler capable of 156 mph (251 kmh) and 0 - 60 mph in 5.7 seconds

Powered by two water cooled electric engines that drive the front two wheels and with a total weight of 733kg (1,612lbs), the engines are able to generate up to 321 bhp and 557 lb/ft (756 Nm) of torque.

This stylish 2-seater is able to achieve up to 100 miles on a full charge whilst emitting zero pollutions. As the project also saw Lotus involved the handling is expected to be very good.

Zap are based in California (USA) and the vehicle is set to go on sale there in 2009 at a cost of around $32,500 (£15,500). Reservations for the Zap Alias are currently being taken via the Zap web site.
