Zap has been talking for some time now about offering optional lithium ion batteries on their three-wheeled Xebra vehicles. The Xebra currently uses a lead acid pack the that offers a claimed range of 25 miles. The company has announced that they have lab tested a Xebra truck with a lithium ion pack and achieved a range of 100 miles.

Danish technology company Lithium Balance has two Xebras that they are using for battery and management software development. Zap CEO Steve Schneider recently cut a deal with Chinese company Advanced Battery Technologies to lithium batteries for Zap vehicles.
