Solar Assisted EV Sign In

ZAP's solar assisted car, is a one of a kind EV which is a electric truck with solar panels on the roof. This not only reduces concerns that people may have about the source of their electricity, it also extends the range of the vehicles. The solar panel can also be set up outside your garage to serve as a charging station. This is a vehicle that has emerged after many years of research and development. This model serves as a truck which can carry a payload of upto 300 pounds.

An electric vehicle is different from our concept of vehicles in general. For one, is a silent vehicle and it does not have a tail pipe which regular combustion vehicles have for exhaust to be released into the air. Therefore, they are zero emission vehicles, or ZERO AIR POLLUTION, which is what ZAP stands for.

Re: Solar Assisted EV Sign In

yes, and once the price reaches affordable levels I will be the first to buy. and for the price to reach affordable levels many people must purchase. Then we reach the point Tom made in your other post...battery technology has not yet reached the point where it will work well in many locations in the USA, the pollution factor of worn out batteries, the pollution involved in manufacture of the batteries, and, again, the initial expense of the batteries, and not to mention the replacement cost when they wear out. I truely hope that we soon reach the point where the technology is usable by regular people...I will be the first in line to buy
