Upper Austrian eMobility startup Alveri is planning to launch an all-electric station wagon or shooting brake in 2023. The model, of which only renderings are currently available, is to be based on a third-party platform and will initially be unveiled as a prototype next year.
Under the working title Falco, Alveri envisages an elegant, 4.75-metre-long vehicle with an 80 kWh battery, a range of 590 kilometres, a power output of around 300 kW and a sprint of 4.8 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h. Another important feature for the heads of the start-up - above all the founding duo Ehsan and Jakob Zadmard - is comprehensive smartphone integration, with the mobile phone acting both as an on-board instrument and as a key. The eventual price is expected to be around 49,900 euros, with the four-door vehicle to be marketed primarily via a subscription model or offered in the shared mobility sector.
According to media reports, Volkswagen with its MEB, the Canoo platform and also Tesla are being discussed as platform partners. The decision on the third-party platform is to be made before the end of the year. At the same time, Alveri is also looking for a manufacturing partner. In doing so, the startup is primarily looking around Europe.
The plans for the electric station wagon complement Alveri's existing e-mobility projects. The Austrians first made a name for themselves in 2019 with an app that analyzes the driving behavior of users in terms of their electric car suitability. Together with Graz University of Technology, the company is also currently developing a charging robot for electric cars. Alveri is acting as the initiator and financier of the project - and then wants to take the leap into series production of the charging robot.
