The ZAP Alias Roadster is a plug-in electric three-wheeled sports car project initiated in 2007 through collaboration between ZAP and Lotus Engineering, the UK-based automotive engineering company, who assisted with the first phase development of the vehicle. The vehicle has three wheels, two at the front, each containing an electric wheel-motor, and one at the rear, batteries are fitted underneath the vehicle in a reinforced composite battery box.

Designed with decades of electric and automotive experience, the ALIAS serves a growing niche of automotive enthusiasts who want an affordable electric alternative for getting to work or doing their average daily driving with something that looks like nothing else on this earth.

The ALIAS electric car is now under development as part of a new venture between Zap and Jonway Auto of China.
