The Zap Alias won the on-line poll for the most attractive car, but this car is far more than just a pretty face. An efficient and quick three-wheeled side-by-side, this electric vehicle carries a 32 kWh advanced lithium-ion phosphate battery made by one of the largest BEV manufacturers in the US, yet it still weighed in at a modest 2733 pounds. This car showed innovation in both its design and execution, yielding excellent performance and efficiency. Class: Alternative Side by Side No. of wheels: Three Passengers: Two Drive type: Battery electric, front-wheel-drive Battery type: 32 kwh, lithium-ion Charging: 110v or 220v Thankz for the great video, XPRIZE!
