is getting one heck of a response for their Americanized Smart cars, $1 billion worth of a response. ZAP announced a $1 billion dollar order with DaimlerChrysler except that DC said they would not deliver the cars to ZAP, Dow Jones Newswires just reported. The Smart brand is dragging down DaimlerChrysler's financials and Smart has stalled their U.S. entry by at least two years, so is this the best move? Could DC be rethinking the U.S. market with the popularity of ZAP's Smart? We bet ZAP is reeling right now after hearing this information.
