ZAP to Preview Electric Car Made for iPod at Macworld January 15-18

SANTA ROSA, CA | Posted on January 8th, 2008

ZAP says it will be designing its cars to include a head unit made for the iPod. ZAP cars would play music from the iPod through the car speaker system as well as recharge using the ZAP Recharge-It-All made for iPod battery system. ZAP will be previewing the concept at Macworld and says that the first cars equipped with this technology would be available later in 2008. ZAP says it has plans to make all its electric vehicles for the iPod.

"Apple is making some of the most popular consumer products on the market today," said ZAP CEO Steve Schneider. "A ZAP electric car made for iPod joins an important trend happening throughout the automotive industry to give car-buyers more amenities. So many bring their iPods with them wherever they go that having the capability to listen to and recharge them in your car can only attract more customers."

ZAP will also be introducing its iZAP mobile re-chargers that are made for iPod at Macworld. The iZAP uses advanced lithium battery storage and charge control technology to power or boost the battery life of the iPod. ZAP sells other Recharge-It-All re-chargers that are compatible with a wide range of mobile electronics, including cell phones, digital cameras, smart phones, camcorders, laptops and other low-voltage devices. ZAP has focused on the advantages of its portable battery technology and the potential for reducing the amount of disposable batteries in landfill.

ZAP's many years working on better electric car batteries was the basis for the introduction of the iZAP made for iPod. By purchasing more lithium batteries, ZAP's goal is to improve the economies of scale to help reduce the price for larger format lithium batteries. Recently, ZAP tested a set of lithium-ion batteries with an advanced battery management system in a Xebra truck, which went 152 miles on a single charge.

ZAP is currently marketing the Xebra electric city car and truck worldwide, a 40 MPH vehicle designed for city-speed commuting, business, utility or government fleets. ZAP is designing a line of freeway-capable electric and hybrid vehicles as well.

ZAP will be at the MacWorld Conference & Expo, January 15-18 in booth number 545 and 546.

iPod is a registered trademark of Apple Computer, Inc.
