Electric car manufacturer and distributor ZAP is introducing its new XEBRA truck featuring a solar panel at the Green California Summit and Exposition in Sacramento, March 13 and 14. According to the Zap press release, the XEBRA Sedans and Trucks with a solar panel option put out 90 percent fewer emissions than gasoline powered vehicles, including those from power plants used to generate the electricity that powers the XEBRA.

ZAP says the solar panel enables short commutes on sunlight alone. The XEBRA truck or sedan travels at up to 40 miles per hour and can go up to 25 miles per charge. Classed as a three wheel motorcycle zero emission vehicle, the XEBRA seats two people.

Streetlegal, XEBRAs sell for $10,000 through a licensed dealer network.
