Following the debut of its all-electric JAX Crossover, WOLF pickup, and futuristic camping truck with Heimplanet, California-based Alpha Motor Corporation is now introducing the Montage electric coupe. The custom-built EDU is estimated to generate a powerful 3,335 Nm of torque and 150 kW of power. The gearbox features a 2-stage spur with differential and is configured to perform above 92% peak efficiency.
Since Alpha’s inception, the company’s sustainability initiative aimed to reach beyond the electrification of cars to the implementation of manufacturing solutions which significantly reduce the carbon footprint of industrialization. With the electrification of the vintage model, Montage is planned to be equipped with an optional custom-built Electric Drive Unit (EDU).
Montage is planned to be equipped with a custom-built lithium-ion battery pack with an estimated 250 miles of range. The vehicle will feature an onboard charger with fast charging capability, electronic steering, independent suspension, and performance disc brakes.
The dimensions measure 1384 mm (54 in) tall, 1850 mm (73 in) wide, and 4400 mm (173 in) long. The vehicle comes equipped with wide performance tires with side walls dressed in white and mounted on exquisitely crafted polished metal wire wheels.
This model was unveiled in a refined metallic silver paint called ‘Time Machine.’ The structure of Montage is a teardrop-shaped cabin with fender blisters mounted on the body side. The result is an elegant profile accented by chrome ornamentations. The centre spine of the hood features Alpha’s triangular mark in a refined metal finish.
The Montage features 2 full-size doors which provide entry to plush seating for 2 passengers with extra space for storage in the rear compartment and underneath the hood. The vehicle interior integrates advanced features, including a driver-centric digital speedometer, haptic audio controls, and a digital sound system.
The interior seating of Montage will feature top-grade leathers from Spinneybeck. Spinneybeck is committed to working with the highest quality of sustainable and biodegradable materials. The company’s approach to sustainable design considers all of the parts and pieces of the supply chain and manufacturing processes.
Shawmut Corporation has joined forces with Alpha to bring forth the latest in eco-conscious CMF (Color, Materials, Finish) solutions. The Montage features innovative materials in sustainability from Shawmut, Neoluxe and Spacer Knit. The interior ambience is elevated by Shawmut’s luxurious and recyclable materials which are made from single-component recycled fibres.
Neoluxe captures the plush texture of suede with a carbon footprint reduction of 50% and is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional urethane-based faux suedes. Soft, inviting, and rich in colour, providing exquisite satisfaction to the hand and eye. Spacer Knit™ offers dimensionality and texture unique to automotive interiors. Its breathable knit structure is incredibly lightweight and minimizes the need for foam applications which further reduces the carbon footprint.
The Montage is planned to be built on an electric vehicle platform constructed from the ground up using Alpha’s proprietary development process involving advanced Computer-Aided Development (CAD). The limited-production Montage Coupe will be available via private sale as an exclusive custom-built special-construction electric vehicle.
The limited-production Montage Coupe is now open for applications at the Alpha Motor website. Prices start at $499,000 USD.
