The Gravitational Pull of China | Shifting Gears - From The California Report and KQED

"Considering the daily commute for most urban population centers, and the reach ZAP has been growing globally to areas where an electric vehicle has the most merit, the existing vehicles and proposed models such as the ALIAS should help the company hold and improve its position in coming quarters."

Looks like there is a follow up trend for developers of low-cost, light-duty truck electric components and conversion kit, the IC³, for commercial vehicles, principally American-made pick-up trucks.

Now the team includes executives and electric vehicle company veterans from Barefoot Motors, Ford, Café Electric and ZAP Jonway.

From  the web, just crossed with the AMBIENTE Motors news teaming up with Southern Oregon Universities.

What a wonderful morning for our ZAAP stock symbol.

Monday 22st of November, and I'm still a beijinger enjoying a beautiful sunshine from my office window, nostalgic of the outs and abouts of this freezing weekend, and back to my regular 9am to 6pm daily schedule. There are projects to be completed and programs to be organized, but the great thing about this little brain of mine is just that, even at sleeping hours, it suddenly brings a whole map of the what should or shouldn't be the main focus of activities (can't love it more!!!), but for sure it didn't see the ZAAP stock value climb to the .84 level.

After the first fase completion of the downpayment for the Jonway Automobile plant acquisition on $10 millions, some real concatenated events are putting my ZAAP stocks at the right value level.

This equity ownership transfer was approved by the Chinese government on October 3, this year. The Sanmen, Zhejiang factory plant will ramp into production of the A380 SUV/Electric Taxi, in the first half of 2011 together with ZAP's Alias EV by third quarter of 2011.

The exhibition of the vehicles at the EVS25 at Shenzhen-China, resulted in a solid ground for the right types of markets, with the new motor agreement between ZAP Jonway & Remy Electric Motors propelling a new era to the company's EV portfolio.

But most of all I think this scale growth of the ZAAP cap, is very well deserved, the global revelation of the strategic move to purchase Jonway's Zhejiang automobile plant, which reported sales of over 4,000 gasoline vehicles through the end of September 2010, and projects total sales of over 6,500 vehicles by December of this year, the wholesale sales prices of the vehicles averaged US$10,000 for which the predicted year-end revenues will increase in more than 40 % compared to last year.

Jonway Automobile reported its debt-free status, the positive cash flow, and the readiness for the subsequent goal as part of a new company "ZAP Jonway", which is to lead the emerging EV fleet market in China. Adding to that the announcement of an effective leadership coordination when Jonway's Automobile CEO was selcted by the board as the Co-CEO for the new company.

ZAP's EV technologies, products and expertise, have always been a threat for the main EV industry competitors, with the add of the capability of Jonway Automobile Plant to deliver over 50,000 vehicles per year, I am sure that the launch of its EV sales in the Asian territory targeting volume production delivery by the first half of 2011 is a done deal.

Chering for the best, now back to work.

Arrival Night to Shenzhen, November 4th 2010.

 We already had a telephonic flash forward at arrival on the ZAP JONWAY showroom distribution and arrangements status, so after the check-in at the hotel, no shower, no food and no city sight seeing, our destination was the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center(SZCEC).

Minutes after 8p.m. until the closing time of the Convention and Exhibition Center, which was around 10p.m., our team was the protagonist on logistic details of the ZAP Jonway pavilion, from vehicle picture aesthetics to vehicle display location within the booth.

WEVS 25 in Shenzhen (hours before the opening....)

After knowing that the last time China hosted the EVS was only 11 years ago (EVS16 - Beijing), our was all cheers and excitement for the experience, sharpening our knowledge about the trip to Shenzhen, event details and how we would be presenting our brand ZAP Jonway at a such international platform. 


Not sure how did it started but comparison on who was the lightest traveller was one of the longest and funniest subjects that kept all of us laughing for more than 20 minutes before departure.

 EVS25 here GOES the ZAP-JONWAY team BEIJING!!!
