SAN ANTONIO - Electric automaker ZAP has shipped a fleet of its Zaptruck XLs, a 100-percent plug-in electric low-speed vehicle (LSV) equipped with a payload drop-in shell, to Bexar County.

The vehicles will be used by a variety of county departments as they expand their "green initiative." Each truck is equipped with ZAP's newest versatile payload shell providing a weatherproof, fully enclosed and lockable storage compartment.

"We have a rapidly growing number of these vehicles in our production queue as a result of stepped up demand and purchasing activity," said Steven Schneider, ZAP CEO. "[The XL truck] has a variety of battery power levels, and our new payload shells can be equipped with full-length lift up doors with tinted windows, discrete tool bins, space-saving roll-up doors, and a top-mounted utility rack."
