Sri Lanka’s Vega Innovations is set to show off its first project at the Geneva auto show. This is an electric EVX supercar, which has an all-wheel drive system, a lithium-iron-phosphate battery and a range of 240 km.

Announced back in 2015, Vega was supposed to acquire a 900-horsepower power unit. But now the company is reporting more mundane figures. The supercar will be equipped with two electric motors with a capacity of 408 hp. and 720 Nm of torque and a liquid-cooled lithium-iron-phosphate battery with an energy storage density of 220 watt-hours per liter volume (total capacity unknown). Acceleration times of up to 60 mph (97 km / h) in 4 seconds and autonomy of 240 km are announced.

There are a number of innovative solutions. First of all, the company assures that it has created very sophisticated powertrain control algorithms, and secondly, some innovations in the layout of battery cells, a power control system and control software. Finally, the Vega EVX will be equipped with a semi-autonomous driving system with lane control, recognition of signs and pedestrians.

Vega Innovations is part of the CodeGen Group, whose core business is software development. Chief Executive Officer Harsch Subasinghe holds a degree in artificial intelligence and software agents; The position of Director of Strategic Planning is held by Besan Kulapala, who previously worked as CTO at Intel.
