ZAP Alias and SUV Answer Korea Electric Vehicle Challenge
The Korea Electric Vehicle Challenge took place outside Seoul with ZAP and
Samyang Optics entering two vehicles under development, the Alias electric
car and the electric A380 SUV.
This was ZAP's first public demonstration of the Alias and SUV. ZAP's two
100 percent electric vehicles drove in a 200km/124.3mi route at average
speeds of 85kph or 52.8mph as part of an EV Challenge representing the
Korean electric vehicle industry.
The three-day event includes an Eco Fair where the ZAP vehicles are
scheduled to appear in parades and in an exhibition of fuel efficient
vehicles and other consumer products.
ZAP was hosted by Samyang Optics in their ongoing partnership to distribute
electric vehicles in Korea. The Korean government has announced support and
investment in electric vehicles over the next few years. Several
government and business leaders spoke at the opening ceremony for the
event, including Korean ministers, congressmen, representatives from the
Korean Elecctric Vehicle Association, as well as Samyang CEO Christopher
Kang and ZAP CEO Steve Schneider.
The electric SUV is based on a partnership between ZAP and auto
manufacturer Zhejiang Jonway Automobile Co. Ltd. using the A380 5-door SUV
targeting the China fleet market. The ZAP Alias electric car is entered in
the Progressive Insurance Automotive X Prize taking place this year. For

1967 Triumph Spitfire EV Conversion - Student Project
Mechanical Engineering Students from the University of Colorado Denver
spent the Summer of 2009 converting a broken down 1967 Triumph Spitfire
into a 100% Electric Vehicle. Our EV conversion can reach a top speed of
75 MPH and has a maximum range of 40 miles (of average city driving) all
with an overnight charge (8-10 hours) on a standard 110 Volt outlet. We
completed the entire conversion for under $10,000 including almost $2,000
of restoration work, all in about 8 weeks.
