Curious-looking thing, the Alpha Ace Coupe. It looks as though it was designed for a Pixar movie, or perhaps the next Grand Theft Auto game. But no, it’s an actual car that you can actually buy. Well, these appear to be some renders of a car you may one day be able to buy, at any rate.
Alpha, an EV start-up based in California, aims to have its first cars on the road “as early as 2023.” You can reserve an Ace Coupe on the company’s website right now—Alpha claims 0-60mph (97kph) in around 6sec and over 400km of range. The retail price, it says, will be between $32,000 and $39,000 (P1.54 million and P1.87 million).
The Ace is based on the same modular platform as the company’s other concept, the Icon, which is “configurable into a SUV, van, or truck for personal and commercial use.” At 4,180mm long, 1,886mm wide, and 1,450mm tall, the Coupe is as long as an Alpine A110 and the same height as a BMW 1-Series.
The interior is typically minimalist EV, with a large central touchscreen and no buttons to speak of, though the leather door-pulls are a nice touch. We’re told there are “compact rear seats for occasional storage.” As opposed to, y’know, passengers.
