ZAP's acquisition of Jonway Auto is the most significant business transaction of its kind this year in Taizhou, a coastal city of six million people, said ZAP CEO Steve Schneider and Jonway Auto CEO Alex Wang. The two hosted an event Friday with thousands in attendance, including autoworkers, politicians, business leaders and media.

The celebration for the new venture between ZAP and Jonway Auto continued over the weekend. ZAP Jonway sponsored Taizhou's Green Crab Festival on Saturday, an annual event that attracted more than 18,000 people, including several Hong Kong movie stars and celebrities. The Green Crab festivities aired on major television networks throughout China, highlighting the "green" connection to ZAP Jonway.

The celebration and ceremonies accompany a series of business meetings to advance the goals of the newly formed company, ZAP Jonway, which combines ZAP electric vehicle expertise with Jonway's manufacturing capabilities. Business proceedings continue this week and company officials expect further announcements over the next several days.
