Su­per Car

Southasia - - BRIEFS -

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.
