Thanks to Tesla Motors for leading the charge in electric vehicles, we now have a myriad of electric vehicles to choose from. The Alpha Ace from California-based Alpha Motor is one such EV.
Alpha Ace is a car that will appeal to those who has a thing for retro design. It looks like a cross between the 70s Toyota Celica and Honda N360 that somehow has a hint of caricature in it. We totally dig the look.
The DeLorean DMC-12 kind of stainless steel look only adds even more magic to the strangely alluring aesthetic. The retro-style side mirrors, small wheels with large tires, and flared wheel arches complete the retro-licious vibe. Meanwhile, the uber minimalistic interior is modern yet oozes with retro vibe too. Absolutely lovely.
Details of the drivetrain are not known. However, we read that the 3,600 pounds (1,633 kilograms), 2-seater EV is rear-wheel drive (read: a real car), does over 250 miles (402 kilometers) on a single charge and makes 0-60 (0-97 km/h) in 6 seconds.
Battery cooler and heater comes as standard, and so is rapid charging. Though it is not clear how fast is the charging time.
Other details include 16” up to 18” wheels, LED signature headlights, daytime running lights, 14 cu ft of cargo space, wide format center display, premium seat and trim material, Bluetooth connectivity, and premium sound system.
Alpha Motor Corporation is taking reservation for the Alpha Ace and like many EVs in the market or planned, Alpha Ace does not come cheap. Expect to plonk down at least US$32,000 for a unit. It is also worthy to note that there’s no time given on when it will roll out of the factory.
