ZAP Alias Electric Car Nails X PRIZE Final Dynamic Safety Test First Try
The ZAP Alias just gets better and better in the Consumer Reports dynamic stability safety tests. First the 0-60 acceleration test, then the 60-0 braking test, then the double lane change, accident avoidance “Moose Test.” Proving that three wheeled cars can be designed for excellent handling, the ZAP Alias electric car drives through all three tests on the first try. The Alias appears to accelerate faster than it did in the Knockout Stage, when it posted acceleration under 10 seconds. It stopped so far away from the cones, I couldn’t fit both in the camera lens. In the lane change it is solid on the road, barely squealing the tires without knocking down a single cone. Arguably the Alias is the best handling car in the competition and our design engineers and technicians should be congratulated for doing stellar work. This is proof positive that the Alias is production-ready.
