First ZAP Electric Car Arrives in Boston

As Boston Mayor Thomas Menino prepares to host this weekend's "AltWheels Festival" highlighting cutting edge vehicle choices of tomorrow, Zero Air Pollution pioneer, ZAP, has delivered the nation's first commercially viable electric car.

Investment manager, Doug Hart, has purchased Boston's first XEBRA sedan, which is the only production electric car available to the public for under ten thousand dollars. The XEBRA electric city car can travel up to 40 miles an hour and produces 98 percent fewer pollutants than gas cars. The XEBRA became available for delivery after the registration deadline for this year's AltWheels event but mayor Menino's environmental department spokesperson, Laura Bickel, praised ZAP's XEBRA as "the kind of innovative car the mayor had in mind when he proclaimed the city's new policy to start buying only electric, hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles for its city fleet."

Hart says the XEBRA has already sparked interest in the short time its wheels have been on the ground in Boston. "When I drove by the post office there was a group of ladies protesting the war. When they saw my wife and me in our XEBRA, they gave us a standing ovation."

"Many people are complaining about global warming and the price of oil and gas, but I decided to do something about it. In my research I learned one of the best things you can do for the environment is to either drive an electric car or invest in an electric car company. After completing my research, I found that the only affordable electric car was the XEBRA and one of the only public companies was ZAP."
