TORONTO, ONTARIO and CEDAR PARK, TEXAS--(Marketwired - Oct. 18, 2013) - ZENN Motor Company Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ZNN) ("ZENN" or the "Company") and EEStor, Inc. ("EEStor") jointly hosted an analyst and investor visit today at the EEStor facilities in Cedar Park, Texas. Visitors were provided with a full briefing by EEStor on the EEStor business plan, technology, production processes and toured the EEStor plant. Demonstration tests of EESU layers were done to show EEStor's methodology of testing high resistance layers, of testing capacitance over various frequencies and measuring watt hours over voltage. Visitors were able to observe continued progress in the development of layers.

ZENN and EEStor also agreed today to engage a major qualified firm, in addition to the qualified firms they have been working with, to assist both companies in developing testing protocols and to conduct and report on comprehensive testing of the EESU layers. Testers will have full access to EEStor facilities as well as newly produced layers.

Both EEStor and ZENN are, and have been, committed to providing detailed information regarding testing to ensure reliability and accuracy of test reports. There is significant complexity in the technology and the testing protocols and the companies are developing a plan using third parties that will allow for third party confirmation of testing results.
