Wired Magazine did an expose on Zap:

The Xebra is the only car they are selling in any numbers, but they will be happy to take $100,000 from you in return for being named an exclusive distributor of their upcoming car, the ZapX:

The all-electric crossover SUV due sometime in 2007 would not only produce 644 horsepower, rocketing it from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a Ferrari-esque 4.8 seconds, but would travel 350 miles on a single 10-minute charge.
Zap also claimed to have locked up distribution of the Smart car (even after Daimler Chrysler told it the deal was a no go) and that the Xebra has a top speed of 40 MPH and a range of 40 miles ... it has a top speed of 34 MPH and a range under 20 miles ... and stalls going up hills.
