Following sales of $737,000 of vehicles in August
and the Kentucky plant groundbreaking
in September, Zap has announced that the company shipped more vehicles in the third quarter of 2008 than during any other time since it started selling the Xebra (truck and sedan versions) in 2006. How many vehicles make up Zap's new record? 240, which is up from 80 in the third quarter of 2007. Second quarter Xebra sales were 130 in 2008 and 80 in 2007. These sales increases also mean that Zap was able to add jobs (30 percent more since the start of 2008), according to an announcement out earlier this week
. Oh, and "ZAP is launching new electric vehicles
in the fourth quarter." Will we get more Zappys
or something bigger?
