"I wanted to clarify to many of the shareholders who have called in," said ZAP CEO Steve Schneider. "There have been many false news reports about ZAP in the past, but these recent ones are ridiculous. We don't know if these stories are falsified or are simply a mistake, but we are going to be looking into them. We do know that there are interests out there that don't want electric cars to succeed and those who would prevent ZAP from meeting its future goals."
