One of the drawbacks of owning an electric car, other than constantly being asked out on dates, is the slow charging time. Understanding it's not convenient for everyone to wait six hours in between drives, ZAP is offering a 100-amp/10,000-watt charger that'll juice up your Xebra in less than an hour. Of course, that's a $9,000 premium on top of a your $10,000 car (though it can quality for a 30% tax credit). As always, expect to pay green to be green.
