Looks like a Lego car, I love it! Plus it's proportions are really weird, in a good way. Either it has a super short wheelbase, or it's really wide, or really low. And it's all droopy... totally a toy car! If they can keep the price down, it'll sell like crazy. Plus AWD and decent power.

Like it. Getting classic Alfa Romeo Giulia GTV coupe and Mazda RX-3 vibes from it. Probably going to be $$$$$, sadly.

If they get this under $30k it will be the ticket to bring in young enthusiasts into the EV fold.

A car that small weighing in at 3800 lbs? Being electric AWD but still having a 0-60 just shy of 5 seconds? What? I bet it only has like 200 mi range, too

When your gucci limited performance EV gets spanked by a mid-tier family sedan offering, it might be time to consider other endeavors.

Edit: more specs from the reservation page
https://www.alphamotorinc.com/alpha-ace-reservation

250mi range on the single motor version which has a 0-60 of 6 seconds and price of 32-39k.
No price on the awd version, but it has 220 mi range.

I'll admit, that's cheaper than I expected, which is cool.

I love you guys...

The look is pure awesome, but like most EV it does nothing better than most ICE vehicles. It is just different. If different is what you want BUY this and smile every day. I do not see the point.

It does look snazzy In a 1800 RS escort kind of way.

I believe it. I've never paid attention to electric cars enough to know what they weigh. Teslas are a snooze fest to me, but this thing is pretty rad.

I almost love it. The reverse cat belly slope on the waist line is not my favorite thing in the world. Pull the EV nonsense and swap a K20 and I'm in.

I just hope GM realizes that they could make big inroads with a small Ultium batteried coupe like this. Then use the same chassis for a small pickup. 200 mile range could probably get them around 3500 if the reports are on target for the Ultium range.
