City of Richmond, Calif., First City Fleet in the Nation to Incorporate ZAP Trucks

April 4, 2007

RICHMOND, CA – With a pledge to ask the Richmond City Council to create a Department of Environment within four years, Mayor Gayle McLaughlin also announced her commitment to fight global warming by demonstrating Richmond’s new electric vehicle pilot program.

“As the first fleet in the country to incorporate all-electric city-trucks we are proud to promote zero emissions vehicles,” said Richmond Mayor McLaughlin.

ZAP calls the XEBRA sedan and truck “city-cars,” an electric car design for inner city driving up to 40 mph. Able to plug into any standard electrical outlet, the XEBRA was designed to quickly and affordably fill the need for all-electric cars and trucks brought on by recent high gas prices. The XEBRA is manufactured through a strategic partnership with a Chinese auto manufacturer and available through ZAP’s authorized dealers at a price of about $10,000.
