Cons: 2 Seats

The three-wheeled Alias, due to go into production in 2009, will have a top speed of over 100 miles an hour and go 150 miles on a charge, according to Zap. It will sell for $30,000.


The Alias will also likely come with a hybrid range extender, a small gas motor that can power the car or charge the battery.


Zap said last year it planned to release a $30,000 electric car in 2009 but didn't mention at the time that it was a three-wheeler.
