New ZAPINO(TM) Moped-Class Electric Scooter Now in Stock
SANTA ROSA, CA--May 31, 2007 -- Filling the gaps between point A and point B, ZAP (OTC BB:ZAAP.OB - News) has finally found the middle road. The new ZAPINO electric scooter is a great link between ZAP's personal transporters and electric cars. Not only economical and eco-friendly, the ZAPINO is powerful with an advanced 3000-watt brushless DC hub motor, perfect for city commuting. Able to reach speeds of 30 MPH, the ZAPINO will be able to keep up with city traffic without contributing to city pollution.
The rear wheel hub motor on the ZAPINO creates more room on board for additional batteries and performance. This innovative drive system eliminates the need for belts or chains with lower overall maintenance. It also delivers a more enjoyable ride because it is nearly silent, accelerates smoothly with no shifting, has no engine vibration, no tailpipe or heat exhaust -- just good, clean fun.
ZAP pioneered the use of wheel motors in electric vehicles, first incorporating one into its line of ZAPPY3 electric scooters in 2004. Learn more at http://www.zapworld.com/.
