Designed and developed by Vega Innovations, a subsidiary of CodeGen International Ltd, Vega electric supercar is the first of its kind built in Sri Lanka.

Vega Innovations is an electric vehicle (EV) automobile manufacture of electric supercars, based in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Vega also designs and manufactures EV components such as high-performance inverters, drivetrains, and battery packs as well as provide EV research and development (R&D) services to clients worldwide. Founded in 2013 December by Dr. Harsha Subasinghe CEO of CodeGen International and Dr. Beshan Kulapala, with a vision of building high performance, cost-effective, sustainable technologies to disrupt the EV market. On its six-year journey, Vega has developed South Asia’s first electric supercar, Vega EVX, and will be unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show in March 2020. Vega is also developing alternative, mass market, transportation vehicles with its international partners. Vega Innovations is a startup company, part of CodeGen International.

The fully electric, two-seater 804 HP supercar in a handmade carbon fiber body is powered by a dual-motor all-wheel drivetrain. All automotive electronics, including the liquid-cooled motor controllers and Li-ion battery pack, is designed and manufactured in-house, showcasing some of the most advanced technologies in the EV supercar space. Vega accelerates from 0-100 km in 3.1 seconds and has a range of 300km with 55kWh NMC Gen 2 Battery Pack.

The advanced traction control inverters for electric vehicle applications are using patent-pending technology for lightweight, high power density requirements. The system is capable of 350kW peak power, operating up to 900V and 600A.

Liquid-cooled with pin-fin structure baseplate proprietary technology is reducing costs and enhancing the lifetime of the solid-state devices.

Vega EVX has integrated Spark Connected’s in-cabin wireless charging technology, based on the solution named The Beast, into its luxurious cockpit. Supporting all fast charge smartphones, the solution provides an integrated smartphone wireless charging feature, complementing the Vega’s state-of-the-art interior and technology features.

Vega Innovations combined dual electric motors and a light carbon-fiber construction, allowing the Vega EVX to retain its remarkably lightweight of 2,090kg even with a dense onboard lithium-ion battery pack. This is a result of innovative packaging, safety, battery management, system hardware, as well as firmware and software technologies.

According to Vega Innovations CEO Harsha Subasinghe, “The Vega EVX is South Asia’s first all-electric supercar which uses innovative, modular and fully scalable systems that can be customized to optimize performance and drive-train technology. Our partnership with Ruwanga and his Spark Connected team has been great and has resulted in a high performance and EMI best-in-class wireless charging solution that further enhances the user experience in the Vega.”

The Beast-based in-cabin wireless charging solution is a high-performance solution that meets stringent requirements for integration into the automotive cockpit. The solution has been certified CISPR-25 Class 4, an industry first, to meet strict automotive in-cabin emissions requirements for electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).
