New Electric Car Factory Rolls Out First ZAP Xebra

LING XIAN, CHINA and SANTA ROSA, CA | Posted on October 24th, 2007

The new factory has the capacity to produce up to 4,000 vehicles per month, according to officials from ZAP and Shandong Jindalu Vehicle Company, Ltd. The modernized factory provides a more productive working environment with state-of-the-art automation as well as vehicle research, development and production capabilities.

Shandong Jindalu held a dedication ceremony and celebration at the new facility. More than 300-400 attended, including the Governor of Shandong Province and the Mayor of Lin Xian. Shandong Jindalu President Mr. Lu hosted the dedication. The factory opening was broadcast throughout the country on Chinese television with ZAP Chief of Operations Amos Kazzaz shown cutting the ribbon for the new factory.

"ZAP has done what practically all the critics say is impossible," said ZAP CEO Steve Schneider. "Electric cars and trucks are rolling off an assembly line and customers around the world are sending in orders faster than we can deliver."

Ling Xian is an industrial city in Northern China with a population of over 5 Million. Shandong Jindalu and ZAP are scaling up production for their pioneering auto industry venture in China. The previous facility had the manufacturing capacity to produce up to 1,000 vehicles a month.

ZAP is marketing the Xebra electric sedan and pickup through a global distribution network of auto distributors, dealers and service centers. The Xebra is a unique 'city-car' designed to provide an energy efficient alternative for commuters, multi-car families, businesses and government fleets.
