Remember the ZAP-X we reported back in late January of 2007? Well ZAP today showed a sketch of the new ZAP-X Crossover SUV, a high-performance family electric car that it is building in collaboration with Lotus engineering. The ZAP-X will have in-hub electric motors, delivering 644 horsepower in all wheel drive mode, capable of powering the ZAP-X to a top speed of 155mph. Zap is saying that the car will have a 350 mile range and a recharge time of 10 minutes.
“We believe that the ZAP-X will become the most advanced, most practical and most appealing flagship electric vehicle to date and will revolutionize the industry providing the driver with the enjoyment of a sports car and the practicality of an SUV,” says ZAP CEO Steve Schneider.
