Rendered? Yes, like all Alpha products, cool as they may look, we’re taking a bit of a skeptical tone, as the company has only produced a single styling mock-up. Perhaps the Saga and SuperSaga will emerge from Alpha’s startup stage and bring their retro-futuristic style to a charging station near you. Until then, we’ll enjoy the view.
Alpha Motors is a bit of an enigma at present. It keeps revealing cute, perky EVs that combine retro appeal with a chunky, simplistic styling that has the charm of a great toy car come to life. Except they haven’t quite come to life yet. The Ace, Jax, Wolf, Wolf+, and now the Saga sedan are mostly just ideas, although the Wolf has a full-size model version that real human beings have actually laid eyes on at the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles.
Alpha’s hope, we presume, is that a continual drumbeat of cool ideas and lifelike renderings—great renderings, to be sure—may garner the backers needed to bring these vehicles to life. It’s the startup-VC dance, something we’re quite used to seeing, and until something rolls off a production line somewhere, there are no guarantees.
