ZAP Meets With National China Electric Car Delegation

SANTA ROSA, CA | Posted on December 7th, 2007

The Chinese electric vehicle (EV) delegation is composed of officials, experts and entrepreneurs engaged in electric, hybrid and fuel cell vehicle and related component developments, including motors, batteries, power electronics, and energy management.

The delegation met with ZAP in a special closed session at the 23rd International Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exposition (EVS-23) in Anaheim, California. EVS is the world's largest electric drive industry event.

The delegation comprises key members of the Chinese EV industry, part of what is called "The China National 863 Major EV Projects." Mr. Wei Feng, the Secretary-General of the Electric Vehicle Association of Asia-Pacific (EVAAP), and Director of China Electrotechnical Society, was the leader of the delegation and recognized ZAP as one of the only Companies in the world successfully developing and manufacturing electric vehicles in China.

"ZAP's expertise in design, marketing and distribution is well-known," said Mr. Feng. "Our delegation wanted to visit with ZAP to further establish the business and technical cooperation I believe will strengthen the relationships between ZAP and its Chinese partners."

"We feel we have met with the leaders of the EV industry in China," said ZAP Chairman Gary Starr. "As a result we have created new relationships in motor, controller, and battery technologies. With our current partnerships in China, we feel that we will now be able to accelerate our leadership role in providing low-cost, high-quality electric vehicles for the world."

ZAP recently formed a joint venture in China with Youngman Automotive Group, one of China's leading manufacturers of luxury motor coaches and high-quality commercial trucks. ZAP and Youngman have signed a joint venture agreement to manufacture, market and distribute electric and hybrid vehicles for the passenger car, truck and bus markets. The new joint venture company will also focus on the development and manufacturing of electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
