Oregon electric car dealership to close up shop

ZAP Xebra Truck
The Portland, OR-based dealership of "Earth-friendly new and pre-owned vehicles," EcoMotion, is closing its doors. The dealer, which is probably best known for selling the three-wheeled ZAP cars, is currently having an inventory blowout, too. Buyers can pick up a brand-new, all-electric ZAP car for under $3,000. Not bad since MSRP is over $11,000.

The Chinese-made ZAP cars are available in several configurations including sedan, pickup with tilt bed, or cargo vehicle. FYI, the ZAP Xebra has a top speed of 40 mph and a range up up to 25 miles.

EcoMotion also has several other new electric vehicles, and a few used cars, too. The inventory-reduction sale at EcoMotion began April 3.

Dang, seeing that Zap reminds me of something else of note to subcompacts in the USA - The Tuk Tuk is coming to America! Autoblog had a post on it yesterday. Hahaha I can't wait to see them puttering around our cities!
