ZAP goes four-wheeling

ZAP releases conceptual drawings of its electric ZAP-X Crossover SUV.

ZAP is giving four-wheeling enthusiasts a proverbial peek under the hood. The electric car maker just released some conceptual drawings of its ZAP-X Crossover SUV.

The ZAP-X Crossover SUV will feature all-wheel drive, with in-hub electric motors, a design that aims to deliver 644 horsepower and a top speed of 155 mph. But most electrical vehicle buyers have one thing in mind: "How far can I go, before I need to juice up?" The ZAP-X Crossover aims to reach a 350-mile range before it needs another 10-minute charge.

The price? $60,000. That's roughly the cost of two Honda Pilots.

Here's another way to crunch the numbers. The price difference between the ZAP-X and Honda Pilot is equivalent to an additional 10,000 gallons of gas at Northern California prices. That's about the same as 500 trips to the gas station to fill up a Pilot's tank.
