Gas prices across the country have reached new heights and unfortunately they are only expected to further increase these coming summer months. At this time, most are wondering if we will ever again find relief in our gas expenditures or if we will continue to feel the tightening in our wallets.
Due to the increase in gas prices a lot of consumers are starting to change their driving habits or are turning to Electric cars, such as the new ZAP Smart Car.
Never heard of ZAP? ZAP stands for Zero Air Pollution and runs strictly on electricity. Yep, that means no gasoline is required and no oil changes! ZAP estimates that a consumer would only spend one cent per mile driving a ZAP vehicle versus an average vehicle which costs about ten cents per mile using gasoline. If you are not interested in driving a full electric vehicle, they also manufacture scooters and bikes.
In addition, the company also carries innovative models such as the Obvio ! 012, which runs on a mixture of ethanol, gasoline or natural compressed gas or pure ethanol. The car will seat 3 passengers and capable of reaching a top speed of 160 mph.
All of the cars have a very fun ‘unique’ design which borderlines futuristic and stylish. They are absolutely eye-catching, odd-shaped, and they are definitely a line of cars that will get you noticed.
A nice thing to note, is that Zap is also pledging to plant 1 million trees worldwide within 3 years. With each customer who donates $25.00 for every electric car they purchase OR with each individual who donates (no purchase necessary) $25 to the project, Zap will plant up to 200 trees!
