With its new product offerings, the Company is positioned to become a leading brand and distribution portal of advanced technology vehicles. ZAP is committed to running its business based on a strong philosophical foundation that supports the environment, social responsibility and profitability.
ZAP's strategy is to serve the growing and underrepresented consumer that seeks fuel efficient vehicles. With the recent increases in the cost of oil and increasing concern about the environment and the effects of global warming, we believe there is a large and untapped demand in the areas of transportation and consumer products. During the energy crisis of the 1970s, Japanese automobile manufacturers penetrated the United States market when domestic automobile manufacturers failed to anticipate changes. ZAP believes a similar opportunity is present today, enhanced by heightened environmental awareness, climate changes and economic pressures. ZAP has assembled a complete line of products to meet the growing demands of the environmentally conscious consumer focused on two primary businesses: ZAP Automotive and ZAP Power Systems.
ZAP was incorporated as "ZAP Power Systems" under the laws of the State of California on September 23, 1994, and we changed our name to ZAP on June 18, 2001.
On March 1, 2002, the Company filed a voluntary petition for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code with the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California, Santa Rosa Division. The plan of reorganization was confirmed on June 20, 2002 and the Bankruptcy Court closed the bankruptcy case on June 14, 2004. Our principal executive offices are located at 501 Fourth Street, Santa Rosa, California, 95401 and our telephone number is (707) 525-8658. We also conduct certain portions of our business through the following wholly-owned subsidiaries: Voltage Vehicles, R.A.P. Group, Inc., ZAPWorld Stores, Inc., ZAP Manufacturing, Inc. and ZAP Rental Outlet.
