The Latest Sport Utility Accessory – An Electric Scooter

SEBASTOPOL, Calif., June 2, 1999 – In the
first promotion of its kind, automotive and electrical vehicle
manufacturers are combining to provide California consumers with a
unique transportation solution.

This summer new Mercury Mountaineer SUVs will come with a ZAPPY
electric scooter inside, made by Northern California’s ZAPWORLD.COM
(OTC BB:ZAPP). The offer is good through June 30th at Lincoln
Mercury dealers in California and Hawaii.

The battery powered ZAPPY is one of the world’s most portable
electric vehicles, able to fold to the size of a small suitcase.
The ZAPPY can be used as stand-alone personal transportation or in
conjunction with a car, bus, boat, train, airplane or RV. It
travels at bicycle speeds with a single battery charge lasting
several miles. The ZAPPY can be recharged at any household outlet
with its portable charger or by a cigarette lighter with an optional
mobile charger.

While the ZAPPY and the Mountaineer come from opposite ends of the
vehicle spectrum, officials from the two companies visualize the two
working well together.

“This is a great fit between an automobile and a specialty electric
vehicle,” said ZAP managing director Gary Starr. “With a ZAPPY in
the trunk, Mountaineer owners can now travel literally anywhere,
from mountain roads to the inner city. When parking and traffic are
a problem, just deploy the ZAPPY and use it around town for short
trips, for errands, or simply for fun.”

“ZAPPY represents the type of innovative product sought after by
Mountaineer customers,” said David Greenberg, Mercury Mountaineer
brand manager. “Talk about a great pairing, the Mountaineer even
comes with an auxiliary 12 volt power outlet, so owners can recharge
their ZAPPY while driving.”

The Mountaineer is Mercury’s popular entry into the sport utility
vehicle segment, offering the confidence and versatility of an SUV
with a comfortable and sophisticated drive. In addition to its
overall value, Mountaineer is classified as a Low Emission Vehicle,
cleaner than most passenger cars on the road today.

Since 1994, ZAPWORLD.COM has delivered thousands of electric bikes
and scooters to commuters and recreational cyclists in more than 60
countries. ZAP is a publicly owned company with stock trading under
the symbol ZAPP. For ordering information, franchising
