WIRED Tells the World: "Stop Publishing ZAP Press Releases"

WIRED Magazine published an absolutely scathing denouncement of Zap! Electric Car Company in their most recent issue. The feature article is a long and only for you levitra india pharmacy in-depth review of what the EV manufacturer has promised, and what it has actually delivered.

Auto manufacturing has pretty much the highest barrier to entry of any industry...aside from (maybe) making nuclear submarines. And attempting to take the world by storm with all-new technology while struggling with limited resources is probably even more difficult. Among Zap's eight car lineup of heavily promoted vehicles, only two have actually been created. Though that doesn't stop them from charging dealers to create.

It seems that Zap's business model is mostly based on giving the http://www.markwellgroup.com.au/uk-cialis-sales founders stock, printing out press releases, waiting for the stock to rise to amarragessansfrontieres.com a couple of dollars, and then selling the stock. The company's board of directors is controlled by the owners and they have made a practice of free shipping tramadol paying for all of their expenses (right down to janitors) with stock in the company.

Zap has managed to create a couple of products, including a three-wheeled, low-power car, the Zebra, and a truck built on the same platform.

You don't have to run out and buy a copy of WIRED (though, it's a nice thing to have around); the full article is now online.

He desarrollado una TV Backlight (que simula un plasma) de 78¨. Me gustaría que lo veas, está publicado en mi blog personal www.maxcreativo.com
El modelo es el AV 1200 se comercializa solo en Paraguay (por ahora). Pero es un producto novedoso, además en mi www.maxcreativo.com podes ver como fabricar uno, están todas las instrucciones, y como es un blog, puedes consultarme cualquier detalle sobre el mismo


Atentos Saludos

That was a very long article. I'm surprised the company heads aren't guilty of insider trading after reading it.

I'd been following Zap for a while and am glad I read this before buying into the www.asian-americans.com fraud... I feel so bad for the victims in the article!

Wired is so wrong. they got it wrong with apple, they sure got it wrong with ZAP. I've done the real research. Every auto company including GM, Ford, Tesla have been promising electric cars for years. The only one actually delivering them is zap. Check out everyone elses website, and PR for years. Then try to buy one. Only at ZAP www.zapworld.com can you buy one. Is it curious that Carb is cialis and canada custom now also telling us electric cars are not practical?

No shortage of ZAP criticisms
written by Cristina, March 28, 2008
Between Paul Niedermeyer's ZAP Xebra review (which wasn't exactly flattering) and Wired's article...ZAP is getting pretty abused. But it is interesting to how much is cialis consider what the company has actually achieved. Two users on the Green Home Huddle reviewed the ZAP Xebra EV also. Seems to be a little love hate relationship even there.

wired is so right

the desire to believe, the belief in conspiracy left some ripe for exploitation by these flim flam men. one must admit, the electric car is not currently viable. delivering an imported golf cart like the xebra is not an achievement. and people not calling the xebra for what it was, a piece of junk is what led so many delusional folk to invest in this company.

ZAP = The Original Eco-Geeks
written by Alex Campbell, April 17, 2008
C'mon! The Wall Street Journal was making fun of ZAP in 1998 when the Google founders were scooting around Palo Alto pre-IPO. ZAP has been selling electric bikes, scooters, motorbikes, ATVs, dirt bikes, go-karts, seascooters, airboards, NEVs and Xebras since 1994. We even delivered over 300 gas smart cars. ZAP has delivered over 100,000 EVs and is a fully reporting public company. Today the company issued a press release that it has delivered 700 Xebra city-cars and trucks so far. How many electric cars have been delivered by others?

I own one.

I bought my first electric vehicle in 2002, the Nevco Gizmo. I bought the discount cialis fedex Zap Xebra PK in February of buying real viagra without prescription 2007. I wish I would have kept my Gizmo. The quality of the Zap is how to buy tramadol so horrid, that I'm surprised that a class action suit hasn't been brought against them. In the two years I've had it the following things have broken: front brake switch, metal shavings in the axle 'gear box', the CV joint, both 12v inline fuses, the parking brake switch, the charger, the window trim has fallen off, the radio has stopped working, the passanger side door lock, the turn signal (recent), and I've had to replace some wiring. The only thing this vehicle would be good for, would be to buy it for the metal chassis- then replace every part on it.

Where's my refund?
written by Matthew Quinn, September 12, 2009
Why is it there's no class action lawsuit against the fact that Zap's Website says 40 miles with extended range batteries? Which I have in my 2007 Zebra pick-up...NOT EVEN CLOSE!!! Since the day I bought this vehicle I've complained to the dealer and the manufacturer. When I spoke with the buy cheap levitra manufacturer, their response was...now get this..."just keep driving" somehow the batteries will magically respond to getting cialis from canada more mileage and extend the range of themselves to reach 40 miles on a single charge. Well, I keep driving and it's cool order levitra from canada now I get even less range than before.(I get 8 miles to a single charge)and yes I've tried everything!!!

ZAP stopped importing XEBRA in order to Not fix any More RECALLS
written by ZabXEBRA RECALLED, December 29, 2010
How do you like that for ZAP standing behind their products.. They ABANDONED them & other ZAP drivers in the USA once the NHSTA issued a RECALL on ZAP XEBRA BRAKES. Well the 12,000 car only had a 90 day warranty to begin with. Sounds perfect for a 12,000 POS.. right.

Wonder what warranty Zap will give its future cars? Old Zap Xebra's are now imported under the Fuzion, LLC name.
Zaps Made in China for Chinese & Americans who like to lose their $$$ & wait for Spare parts to come on it's great! womans levitra the boat.
