On the Zap-X


The Zap-X concept has been around for awhile now. Potentially, if the vehicle comes to fruition, it will be capable of charging in a mere 10 minutes, driving 350 miles on a charge, and will be packing 644 bhp. Originally the vehicle was set to release in 2008. The delay most likely comes from an inability to back up these audacious charging and driving range claims; because the battery capable of these fetes has not actually been developed yet. There has not been much news on this car in the past year, but Zap keeps the car specs up with a release date of 2010 tentatively set.

The car is technically a SUV crossover and will be longer that a Prius. They are also implementing a new technology called “solar glass”, which will allow the car windows to trap solar energy. Since the technology is so new, it is unlikely the windows will produce any significant charge. Zap claims the price of the car will be around $60,000. However, as with all electric cars set to release in the not so distant future, you have to take it with a grain of salt. There is a strong chance this car will never be released judging by Zap’s track record. I encourage you to read this provided link to understand the nature of the electric car business. Since the electric car industry is relatively new and uncharted territory, some companies may come up with miraculous car concepts simply to generate hype, with no intention of selling them. So keep a discerning eye, but don’t be discouraged, because as long as gas prices are high, alternative energy sources continue to be developed, and there continuous to not be any existent infrastructure for alternative fuels, electric cars will become the next mode of personal transportation.

  1. Howdy! Someone in my Myspace group shared this site with us so I came to look it over.
    I’m definitely loving the information. I’m book-marking and will
    be tweeting this to my followers! Excellent
    blog and fantastic design and style.

  2. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout
    of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    1. Ajisai, comme je l'écrivais autrement dans ce billet, j'ai l'impression que ce parfum essaie d'être trop de choses à la fois, jusqu'au jus teinté en rose contrasté avec le ruban gris peut-être censé le rendre plus adulte… Je pense qu'il y avait certainement de très bonnes idées dans cette composition mais qu'elles ont sans doute été brouillées par trop d'interventions. N'en ayant parlé à aucun des acteurs concernés, je n'en sais rien. Mais ça se subodore.
