Toronto, Ontario – September 16, 2008– ZENN Motor Company Inc. (“ZMC” or “the Company”)is pleased to announce the Canadian debut of its all-electric ZENN in the province of Québec.   Following the announcement by Transport Minister Julie Boulet of a three year province-wide pilot project enabling the sale of low-speed vehicles (LSVs), ZMC has obtained a Retailer license to enable direct customer sales from its factory in Saint-Jérôme, Québec.


To celebrate its Canadian debut, ZENN Motor Company is hosting a launch event for the made-in-Québec, zero-emission, no-noise ZENN at its Saint-Jerome manufacturing facility on Saturday, October 4 th.   All prospective consumers who signed up for ZMC’s waiting list via its website will be invited to test drive the ZENN, meet ZMC officials and enjoy the momentous event of bringing the first commercial electric low-speed vehicles to the Canadian market.   This launch event will mark the first day of sales operations and the Company will be taking orders and deposits on a first-come, first-served basis for the first ZENN deliveries in Canada.


“Theall-electric ZENN is proudly manufactured in Québec and it is certainly fitting that its Canadian debut is in this highly progressive province that is committed to supporting zero emission transportation solutions,” stated Ian Clifford, CEO of ZENN Motor Company.   “This represents an exciting milestone for ZMC as this is the first time we can actively market our vehicle at home where the car is produced.”   


ZENN Motor Company plans to market the ZENN through a unique factory-direct approach.   Retail operations for ZENN Motor Company will be based in Saint-Jerome and will offer customers the opportunity to not only see first-hand how their new vehicle will be constructed, but to also meet the people who will be building their ZENN.  

The ZENN is a fully featured all-electric low-speed vehicle that offers consumers a guilt-free driving experience.   The ZENN represents everything good about personal transportation: it’s stylish, fun and socially responsible.   The ZENN cruises at a federally regulated top speed of 40 km/h and can travel on roads with posted speed limits of 50 km/h.    Featuring generous seating for two plus 13 cubic feet of storage, the ZENN is perfect for those short local trips to pick up groceries, drop off dry cleaning or rent a movie   The ZENN provides a range of 50-80 kilometres per charge and ‘topping up the tank’ is as easy as plugging in your cell phone.   The cost of driving a ZENN is less than 2 cents per kilometre and as little as four hours of charging will provide 80% capacity from a completely ‘empty’tank’.   The ZENN has a retail price in Québec of $16,900.  


The ZENN will be officially launched at the Company’s manufacturing facility at 921 Chemin de la Rivière du Nord, in Saint-Jérôme, on Saturday, October 4 th at 11:00am.   The official ribbon-cutting ceremony will commence promptly at 11:30am and interested consumers who would like to attend and test drive a ZENN are asked to register by clicking on the following link: 1Q,M3,301b6f7e-3cbc-480a-a4b6- 6ec9bf2c4a7d
