Tesla will have a competitor from Austria


A new Austrian startup will build an original electric car based on someone else’s architecture, ecomento.de reports. The creators have not yet decided on the platform, but their choice so far falls on the MEB from Volkswagen.

The novelty is very difficult to somehow characterize – for a full-fledged crossover, it has a very mediocre ground clearance, but at the same time, notes of a SUV are clearly felt in the station wagon. Nevertheless, apparently, the creators see the Tesla Model Y as one of the main competitors. The exterior, which vaguely resembles the brainchild of Elon Musk, also hints at this. However, the feed here is more similar to the Porsche off-road line.

As mentioned above, the MEB platform with all-wheel drive and a total power of 408 horsepower is considered as the basis of an electric vehicle. The battery capacity is also known – it will be 80 kWh, which will provide a power reserve of 600 kilometers. For example, the BMW i4 can travel up to 590 km with an 81 kWh battery.

The company assures that we will be able to see the first prototype by the end of 2022. Moreover, serial production is planned for the end of 2023. Developing a production-ready electric car in two years, albeit on someone else’s platform, does not seem like something real. At the same time, the price list for Falco will start from 50 thousand euros, which is significantly less than that of classmates.

Alveri startup was created in 2019 by immigrants from Afghanistan, Ehsan and Jacob Zadmard. The first fruit of their activity was the autonomous charging robot Charbo.
