Lanka will soon launch its first electric super car, Vega according to Dr. Harsha Subasinghe, CEO of Codegen, the company making the car. Vega will be priced at over US$ 400,000 with the Middle East and Sri Lanka being the target markets. Only 40-50 cars will be created every year to maintain exclusivity.
According to Vega Project Manager Dr. Beshan Kulapala, the country can save US$ 2.5 billion a year on energy if it
relies completely on electric cars instead of fuel guzzlers. It will be an indigenous project by and large with all other components of the car except the batteries manufactured in Sri Lanka.
