ZAP's electric vehicles, the XEBRA sedan, truck, scooter and others, will be on display during the event. From their names, to the way they look, ZAP designed these vehicles to attract attention. The Zapino, ZAPPY3 Pro, and ATV-E are all 100 percent electric as well. They can be used off-road or as an exciting way to get around town.

The ZAP XEBRA was designed as gas-free transportation for busy, urban drivers. Priced a little over $10,000, the XEBRA is available as a four-seat sedan or two-seat utility truck. ZAP calls them "city cars," designed for city driving up to 40 MPH.

Not only do ZAP vehicles use electricity to power them, they produce 90 percent less emission than conventional cars. There are no oil changes or gasoline required to power these environmental friendly vehicles. They plug into an electric outlet like any other appliance, phone, or television in a household.

Ecomotion is located at 1625 NE Sandy Blvd., Portland, OR 97232. For more information, call (530) 244-5658 or visit
