ZAP to Import "Obvio" Cars from Brazil

ZAP and Obvio have agreed to collaborate in the design and manufacture of high efficiency, high performance urban cars. See this previous article for more information on ZAP. Obvio, based in Brazil, intends to manufacture two models for export to the U.S. the Model 012 (shown here) and the model 828. Both cars are small and fuel efficient (see this link for detailed stats). ZAP will serve as the exclusive representative and distributor for Obvio in North America. The 828 is expected to be available for delivery in the third quarter of 2006 and the 012 in the last quarter of 2007. :: ZAP Press Release via Energy Blog
