ZAP Electric Car Dealership Opens in Davis, Calif.
– A dealership for electric car company ZAP has opened in the City of Davis. The new dealership carries ZAP’s XEBRA Sedan and Truck. ZAP calls the XEBRA a ‘city-car,’ designed for short distance driving up to 40 mph. Able to plug into any standard electrical outlet, the XEBRA was designed to quickly and affordably fill the need for all-electric cars and trucks brought on by recent high gas prices.ZAP manufactures the XEBRA electric car and truck through a strategic partnership with a Chinese automaker and sells them through a licensed sales and service network for about $10,000. The cars will cost about $0.02 cents per mile to charge on electricity versus $0.12 cents or more for gasoline.
