When Beijing won the privilege of hosting the 2008 Olympic Games, seven years ago, the Chinese capital promised to improve its air quality, but as the Olympics now are in full swing and air quality has been a visibly controversial issue, ZAP asks if anyone realizes there is an electric car factory just outside of Beijing building hundreds of zero-emission electric vehicles for export by ZAP to the United States?
1. Zero Air Pollution
ZAP stands for Zero Air Pollution. We believe electricity is the fuel of the future. With electricity to power our transportation, our world can tap into renewable resources like hydroelectric, solar, wind, or geothermal power; resources that lessen our environmental footprint. Furthermore, studies show that millions of electric vehicles can recharge at night using existing surplus electrical generation; a vast, virtually untapped resource.

Out of all things to which electric cars aspire – fighting record oil prices, combating global warming, reducing dependency on imported oil – getting a date was a surprising reason uncovered by The Wall Street Journal.
Have electric cars finally become cool? For nearly 100 years electric cars have been derided from the internal combustion automotive circles because they could not match the performance of gas-powered cars. Though history has shown little concern over environmental performance, it seems that high gas prices are finally tipping the scales towards the electric car.
