ZAP Electric Car 'Making History, Not Hype' Says Popular Mechanics

SANTA ROSA, Calif., March 25, 2008 -- It seems like every car company under the sun is jumping on the electric car bandwagon (let's hope the bandwagon doesn't use gas) and it's easy to get caught up in the green car excitement with all the futuristic prototypes being unveiled. But if you want to buy an electric car today, Popular Mechanics told its readers to check out ZAP (OTC Bulletin Board: ZAAP - News).(Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20080325/AQTU089
The February issue of Popular Mechanics published electric car coverage featuring ZAP exclusively in a full-page article about a pilot fleet project with UPS using 42 ZAP Xebras to help with peak holiday deliveries in their Northern California operations.
The Xebra is an electric city-car design that comes in a 4-door sedan or 2-passenger pickup. ZAP says the Xebra is a unique economy vehicle designed to expand the niche for electric transportation with business and government fleets as well as city-speed commuting. The vehicles sell for about $11,200 and up depending on options including solar panels and are available through about 50 US auto dealers.
Popular Mechanics also featured ZAP in an online roundup of "5 Electric Cars Making History, Not Hype" in which writer Erik Sofge picked ZAP first in a list of five electric cars selling around the world today.

In its own way ZAP is making history:

ZAP has been in the electric vehicles (EV) business for over 13 years.

ZAP has manufactured, sold and delivered 100,000 consumer EVs to over 75 countries. To our knowledge no other company in existence today can say this.

Today ZAP is the only company delivering city-speed electric vehicles that fill today's demand for electric cars and help expand the growing niche for consumer-based electric transportation. These electric cars and trucks are now being manufactured and shipped every day.
