Vega the all electric super car features in 2020 Geneva Motor Show
January 27, 2020
Few of us know that the South Asian republic of Sri Lanka has its own automotive industry, thus far represented by the young-but-ambitious Vega Innovations. The carmaker will be attending the Geneva IMS 2020 this spring with its first vehicle, an electric supercar called EVX.
First mentions of the company date back to 2014, and the EVX development reportedly began in 2015. Vega Innovations claims that its track projectile comes equipped with two electric motors (one per axle) and packs 815 PS (600 kW) along with 760 Nm (561 lb-ft) of torque. It zaps from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in mere 3.1 seconds.
The battery specs are a bit ambiguous right now. Multiple media have reported 40 kWh, but the company later corrected them, saying that it switched to 55 kWh some time ago. The same applies for driving range: the press release says 300 kilometers (186 miles), but the official website contradicts it with just 250 km (155 miles). Go figure…
Vega promises to launch a high-end version of the EVX in 2021, ramping up the battery size to 130 kWh and the range to a whopping 750 km (466 miles). The measurement standards remain unknown in all cases.
The vehicle boasts a part-carbon body and has plenty of carbon fiber inside, too. The infotainment display is portrait-oriented.
