Click above for a high-res gallery of the Zap Alias

We mentioned earlier today that Zap will be showing off a new low-speed Shuttle van at the NADA expo this weekend in New Orleans. That post included a note that the Alias, which was a part of the ill-fated Kentucky plant groundbreaking, would also be on display. It was in mid-2007 that Zap first talked about the Alias, their new three-wheeled vehicle - Zap's Alex Campbell just sent us two new renderings of the red Alias that will be down in the Big Easy

The Zapworld website claims that deliveries of the Alias will take place in late 2009 with an "approximate MSRP" of under $35,000. That kind of money will apparently get you li-ion batteries, a range over 100 miles and a 0-60 mph time of 7.8 seconds. Since the three-wheeled Alias will be considered a motorcycle for crash test purposes, Zap will add "enhanced safety features" like seatbelts and a roll hoop. There are more Alias renderings and pictures from Zap after the jump.
