Zap Logs 25,000 Orders For Urbee and Sparkee EVs


ZAP and Jonway Auto currently claim to have 25,000 committed orders for its newest electric vehicle models, which include the URBEE and SPARKEE.

ZAP and Jonway Auto supposedly have the ability to produce up to 50,000 vehicles per year. More about ZAP Jonway can be found here.



These 25,000 orders were allegedly placed with down payments at over 30  dealers that are long established large partners of Jonway Group in  areas like Beijing, Guangdong, Zhejiang, Henan, Xian, Hebei, Jinan, Shandong, and Nantong.

The majority of these orders were for the full electric URBEE.  The vehicle has a driving range of 150km (likely an optimistic figure) on a single charge and is convenient for daily city driving with charging overnight.

The URBEE was held at exhibitions in China and the response was extremely positive. Both current dealers and dealers becoming qualified are confident in high sales volumes.

The Jonway Auto factory is preparing for volume production of 2,000 units each month starting June 2014.

Though URBEE looks unique, we can’t help but see some Smart Fortwo in SPARKEE.

shout out smart they straight jocked the smart car

and lets see the receipts of these 25k orders

look at that fake tridion safety cell its probably just paint LOL im dead

Did Inside EVs forget to mention about Wired’s scathing article before reporting on this questionable EV company?

I trust ZAP about as far as I can throw them.

this isn’t a car, this is a golf cart… give me a break

ZAP has a very poor record in making public statements…

These are the kind of cars that give EVs a bad wrap.

I see ZAP has updated it’s website. No word about the long announced Obvio or Zap-X anymore. Did they just pocket the pre-order money?

In any case, I wouldn’t trust this company.
