New lithium battery technology provides a range of about 350 miles per charge equating to only 1 cent per mile in running costs. There’s also a rapid re-charge mode that takes only 10 minutes to top up. The versatile crossover will be able to seat up to seven passengers in a 5+2 configuration, who will be entertained by an on-board carputer with touch-screen controls and Windows XP. Wi-Fi, Blue-tooth, HD video, iPod connection, Fire wire and USB ports means the ZAP-X could double as a mobile office.
Other features that could make production include a keyless bio-metric entry and ignition system, photovoltaic glass with heating and cooling functions, as well as built in solar panels to generation extra power. Standard features include power windows and locks plus a GPS system. The ZAP-X is definitely one of the most exciting and advanced vehicles of the decade, we just hope ZAP can meet its bold claims.
