A year after it revealed a scale model of its Alias electric vehicle, Santa Rosa-based ZAP rolled into the National Auto Dealers Association conference in New Orleans in a full-sized working model.

The three-wheeled electric vehicle is powered by lithium batteries, giving it a range in excess of 100 miles. The top speed is 75 mph. It seats two and includes amenities like GPS, satellite radio, power windows and door locks. The suggested selling price is "less than $35,000" the company states in its online brochure.

ZAP is hoping to keep the MSRP at $30,000 for the Alias three-wheeler pictured here.

Hero Motors Ultra Maxi uses a 250 watt motor to avoid falling into category that would require license fees, road taxes and registration.

The scooters currently come in two models, 1000 and 1500 watts, and retail for NZ$2200 and NZ$2400 including GST. Photo courtesy of Scoop.
