CEO Radio Network Interviews ZAP on Electric Car Stimulus Incentives

SANTA ROSA, CA--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - Steve Schneider, the Chief Executive Officer of ZAP (OTCBB: ZAAP), a leading source of electric transportation, was interviewed last night by John McDermott on CEO Radio Network.

The interview with Steve Schneider is available at the following URL:

Mr. Schneider related recent developments for ZAP, including tax credits for electric cars from the stimulus package signed into law by President Obama last week. On top of a 10 percent tax credit for electric cars, Schneider noted there is an additional incentive for some of its vehicles under a sales tax deduction for motorcycles.

A veteran of over 20 years in the auto dealer business, Schneider said the stimulus package is important in helping "rebuild the U.S. economy." During the interview Schneider talked about the difficult economy and how ZAP plans to grow in 2009 by offering auto dealers a new profit center with plug-in transportation.

According to Schneider: "Dealers are having a difficult time... and when they came across what we are doing they thought of the perfect niche to supplement all the things that they've lost... so it's been very good timing for us."

On Friday last week ZAP hosted its monthly dealer training seminar, providing a select group of current and prospective dealers with a preview of its new freeway-capable vehicle, the ZAP Alias, due out later this year.
