SANTA ROSA, CA – Electric car pioneer ZAP has introduced its four-wheel ZAP Truck XL. The new addition to ZAP’s line offers an 800 pound payload, according to Marketwire. The XL is a robust four-wheel truck with ample cab space and payload capacity making it ideal for industrial and utility fleet purposes. In the United States, it meets full DOT requirements for 25 MPH Low Speed Vehicles. As part of ZAP’s global distribution strategy, the XL will be designed to meet or exceed government certifications for most of the world.
The ZAP Truck XL is able to drive up to 30 miles on a charge. From a standard 110 volt outlet the ZAP Truck XL recharges in about six hours and an 80 percent charge in just four hours. ZAP offers optional upgrades to 220 volt charging for faster charging. MSRP on the truck is $14,950.
The larger truck presents an opportunity for ZAP dealers to reach out to local fleets looking for larger payload electric vehicles that will help them save capital costs while helping protect the environment. The electric utility vehicle is also practical for consumers and small business owners.
ZAP estimates the XL truck costs between one and three cents per mile to fuel.
