The mean green electric two-seater goes from zero to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds, its two in-wheel motors produce 320 horsepower. It goes a top speed of 156 mph, and could be yours as soon as next year.

ZAP (Zero Air Pollution) is working with Lotus Engineering on the Alias, which is not only faster than the Porsche Boxster, it's half the price.

Implications - The featured video shows off a 360-degree view of the futuristic-looking vehicle. The chief executive of ZAP Steve Schneider claims that "everyone who has seen the Alias says they want to buy one." This eco-friendly sports car can travel more than 100 miles before it needs to be recharged.
