Apr 28 14
ZAP jointly with Jonway Auto, its subsidiary in Zhejiang, China, announced the receipt of 25,000 committed direct orders for its newest EV models of URBEE and SPARKEE. An independent super dealer company was set up by Jonway Group to manage the volume orders and the logistics of managing the new dealers in multiple regions in China. The aggregate committed purchase orders of over 25,000 were placed with down payments from more than 30 new dealers in Beijing, Guangdong, Zhejiang, Henan, Hebei, Xian, Jinan, Shandong, and Nantong. These new dealers are the long established major dealership partners of Jonway Group from Jonway Motorcycle business. Most of the orders were placed for the full electric URBEE, which is viewed by these dealers as a well-positioned product for the metro cities of China and a new entry into the market space that addresses the mass market demands at the right price with quality. With a driving range of over 150 km per charge, it is ideally suited for daily city driving with overnight recharging. Production of both URBEE and SPARKEE has begun, as the Jonway Auto factory readies itself for the volume manufacturing delivery of 2,000 vehicles per month starting June 2014. Delivery of these 25,000 vehicles is scheduled over the next six months.
