Alias Zap
ZAP (short for “Zero Air Pollution”) of Santa Rosa, California, builds various electric vehicles, and sells gray-market conversions of the gas engined Smart Fortwo in the US. ZAP has distributed over 95,000 electric cars, bikes, ATVs, and scooters since its inception in 1994, making it one of the largest in the world.

The company recently announced the Zap Alias, an electric powered 3-wheeler, designed with Lotus, and to be built in China. Zap says the car should be available for sale in 2009.

Specs:
– A motor in each front wheel
– 320 hp
– 0-60 in 5.7 sec
– top speed 120 mph
– range of atleast 100 miles
– price: USD $30,000
