China Car Manufacturer Receives Order for 500 Electric Vehicles from Listed Company ZAP (NYSE Arca:ZP).

HONG KONG -- China car maker Shandong Jindalu Vehicle Co., Ltd has received orders for over 500 units of the XEBRA electric vehicle for export to the USA via a strategic partnership with automotive firm ZAP (NYSE Arca:ZP), according to officials.

Called XEBRAs, they are the first production electric vehicles made in China designed for US roads. Over 100 units have already been delivered to ZAP in California and Shandong Jindalu says it has the capacity to produce 1000 units per month.

The new XEBRA has been co-developed and co-designed through a strategic partnership with ZAP, a publicly owned company based in Santa Rosa, California. ZAP has an exclusive 10-year distribution contract with Shandong Jindalu to market the XEBRAs through its ZAP brand network of authorized sales and service centers.

The second micro-car ZAP is distributing in the US, the tiny XEBRA can park two to a normal parking space. It is a true Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) and ZAP is marketing them as an alternative for families with two or more cars as well as to government and corporate fleets. The car has been designed to plug in at any normal 110-volt outlet.

Under the strategic business relationship, ZAP has permanent offices at the factory in Dezhou to continue research and development of new vehicle models and concepts, and to assist in the manufacturing process.
