The Perfect EV for Your RV — ZAPPY3 Folding Electric Scooter

The ZAPPY3 Electric Scooter Goes Anywhere

ZAPPY3 Folding Electric Scooter

Dear ZAP:

I just wanted to Thank you and to let you know how much I like the Zappy3 and the amount of attention and inquires I have received from people as we tour San Diego.  My wife and I are full time RVer’s and are traveling the United States.  We are now in San Diego and the last 4 days we have given the Zappy3 a very hard work out. We rode the city trolley on all 3 lines off and on, riding the trolley to  stop and see the US Midway museum and taking Old Town trolley around the city.  We went to the San Diego Zoo and spent the day and put it to the real test of seeing the whole zoo and doing most of the steep hills without a problem.  At the zoo I had 3 or four people take a picture of the Zappy3 and ask for details.  And it seemed like dozens of people stopping me and asking about the Zappy3 and where I got it.  It allows me to go places and do things I couldn’t do because of my feet issues.

Pike Research says annual sales of plug-in vehicles in U.S. will hit 358,959 by 2017

Parking for electric vehicles (EVs) onlyPike Research has put out an estimate saying that annual sales of plug-in vehicles in the United States will hit 358,959 by 2017. And they’re not all going to the usual suspects. Mostly, sure, but not all.

Since there is no national Level 2 (or faster) charging infrastructure the way there is a gasoline network, Pike compiled its data by geographic region and even broke down the numbers one city at a time. As Pike states:

As government officials and utility managers plan for the arrival of grid-connected vehicles, they need to understand where those vehicles are going to be located and what the impact could be.

Seems logical to us. So, where will all the plug-ins call home? Well, according to Pike, New York and California will lead the way at the state level. Looking at individual cities, Pike says New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and Chicago will be the U.S.’ top five plug-in loving metropolitan areas. No big surprises there, but here’s a bit of a shocker: relative to population, Raleigh, NC will lead the nation in registered plug-ins by 2017.
