ZAP (OTCBB: ZAAP) Scoots Into Security With PSA

SANTA ROSA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 13, 2006 -- ZAP (OTCBB: ZAAP) announced today an agreement with PSA Security Network® to distribute ZAP's flagship personal transporter, the ZAPPY3 PRO.

"PSA's distribution network is just a natural fit for the PRO," Steve Schneider, CEO of ZAP said. "They deliver to the segment where the decision making happens -- the security experts -- and we see PSA as an ideal partner for ZAP!"

The ZAPPY3 PRO has tremendous torque and stability -- more than most "personal transporters" on the market. The PRO can travel speeds up to 14 mph and can go up to 25 miles on a charge. It has a tight turning radius that works well on indoor and outdoor terrain and hardly makes any noise while being operated.

"We are excited about the first electric vehicle offering through PSA," states Bill Bozeman, President and CEO of PSA Security Network. "Our members have expressed interest in the PRO because it enables security personnel to patrol, day or night, quickly and with virtually no sound."

Since its product launch in August, ZAP has seen an increasing interest for the ZAPPY3 PRO in the security industry.
