The 48th Annual San Francisco Auto Show played host to many products from ZAP, a major distributor of electric and alternative-fueled vehicles in the U.S. One such product was the Xebra, a three-wheeled city car the company will be producing in conjunction with a Chinese automaker and selling in the States. The Xebra will cost $8,995 and have a range of 413 miles with a top speed of 40 mph. Its propulsion comes from a DC motor being fed by a lead-acid battery pack.
We can't speak for everyone, but there's just something unnatural about the Xebra, like it's missing something. And you gotta love the hose that's hanging down beneath the "car" leading to that lonely front wheel. Makes you long for the glory days of EVs and the now-crushed EV1.
