Zap Increases Payload With XL Truck
Electric vehicle maker Zap is introducing a new electric truck for fleets with a greater payload rating. Production models are expected for delivery to customers by the fall. In the United States, the XL Truck will meet full Department of Transportation requirements for Low Speed Vehicles with a top speed of 25 MPH.
The company also has an eye on the global marketplace. The XL is designed to meet or exceed government certifications that would allow for distribution throughout most of the world, according to the company.
ZAP has delivered hundreds of its city-speed vehicle called the Xebra for fleet applications. In November, UPS rolled out a small parcel delivery service using Zap trucks.
Both the Xebra and the XL Truck have a two-passenger capacity, but while the payload rating for the Xebra is 500 pounds, the payload for the XL Truck is rated at 770 pounds.
