PHOENIX, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 02/28/2006 -- Advanced automotive pioneer ZAP (PCX: ZP) announced today that all applicable government certifications for the Smart Car Americanized by ZAP® have been filed and cleared, allowing for the delivery of 85 units to licensed ZAP automotive dealers throughout the United States.
Auto dealer Tim Day of Phoenix, Arizona received one of the first shipments of Smart Cars from ZAP. Day helped in the delivery of the first publicly sold Smart Car Americanized by ZAP when it was auctioned on eBay last summer. Day says he is experiencing first-hand the popularity of the cars.
"We took delivery of the Smart Cars over the weekend and have been getting interest everywhere we go -- left, front and center," said Day. "As we were parking them in front of the dealership, they attracted so much attention they literally stopped traffic, and even caused a fender-bender as people were gawking at them. I drove by my son's elementary school and the teacher invited me to bring the Smart Car for show and tell!"
