This photo is from several years ago and the posting is not accurate. This was never a drivable prototype. It was around 2002 that ZAP was in talks with a European company who said they could sell cars to ZAP. At the same time ZAP was testing a lithium battery that could propel these cars much farther than standard batteries. ZAP was able to sell about two dozen of the first car, but it was not a big seller (see Kurrent). Plus, a little thing called the smart car turned ZAP upside down.
