U.S. EV maker Alpha Motor Corporation has unveiled the company’s mid-size sedan named SAGA at THE ZEVAS, the LA Auto Show’s inaugural zero-emission vehicle awards. The unveiling followed an announcement of the company’s ACE Coupe as THE ZEVAS Winner in the category of ‘Top Coupe’.
SAGA extends the ACE Coupe into a mid-size sedan for five passengers built on its electric platform.
SAGA comes in a single motor rear-wheel drive and dual motor all-wheel drive system with an estimated zero to sixty acceleration time in 6 seconds and maximum speed of up to 124 miles per hour.
The vehicle is intended to be equipped with an 85-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery system with an estimated 300 miles of range. Vehicle charging is achieved using a combination electric vehicle charger with an estimated 80% charge capacity in 1 hour using DC power.
A performance edition and hatch back variant of SAGA are expected to follow.
Alpha Motor Corporation states: “The special process of building the SAGA™ requires carefully constructing feasible geometry. Ultimately, it is the result of an efficient automobile commercialization system to make electric vehicles more accessible.”
It adds: “We anticipate SAGA™ to resonate with people, in terms of what they are looking for in an electric vehicle. It’s a functional and elegant vehicle that we will strive to bring to the market.”
Alpha Motor Corporation is an American automobile company based in Irvine, California.
