Default Zenn EV Car

In case you aren't aware of this yet, the Zenn's unveiling in Québec will be taking place soon. The "unveiling" meaning the first day the ZENN will be available for purchase in its home province of Québec.

Here's a quote from the newsletter:
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 4th 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: http://guest.cvent.com/i.aspx?1Q,M3,...6-6ec9bf2c4a7d

It sounds like this is the new EEStor powered ZENN that is supposed to come out this fall. If it is, this is Huge. It possibly could be the EV that goes 250 Miles per charge and doesn't cost your first born.

But only time will telll as both ZENN and EEStor have spent the summer being quite, but also giving hints that the tech works like it's supposed to.

Would now be a good time to invest in their stocks?

Depends on how much of a gambler you are.

Lockheed martin has supposedly invested in EEstor, but I won't. Seen to many vaporware batteries turn to vapor over the years. EEstor is too secretive for me to trust. No one even knows where their head office is.

No, you won't - because they are not public and you cannot buy stock.

Zenn Motorcars has a small stake in EEStor, and IS publicly traded. There stock is already overpriced based on speculation.

Their main office and MANUFACTURING PLANT is in Texas. It is not hard to find from various posts. Whether or not the goop they manufacture actually does what they claim has yet to be publicly demonstrated, but they have shown through independent testing that the stuff is 99.999% pure in chemical composition and granular consistency. The two questions remaining are whether the goop will suck up as much electricity as they claim consistently and, if it can, whether they can consistently turn the goop into devices which can withstand the vibration and environmental abuse that cars are subject to. Both will be revealed by the end of the year, and by the time the stock goes public you and I will not have an opportunity to get in on the ground level because the big players will have frantically purchased every stock.

No matter, if we finally have a solution to the energy storage problem then we are within 10 years of complete energy independence.

Sure would be nice to at least have a viable option to oil.

They're in Cedar Park, Texas (actually just 2-3 miles North on 183 where I'm from). I first heard of them from an Austin American Statesman newspaper article my dad mailed to me a year or so ago. They exist - whether or not they can deliver I don't know.

Next time I go home I'll do a stake out on their company -- count the number of employees, take pictures, record license plates, question employees at the nearest Starbucks, and break in to steal test capacitors.

Careful, Clint. You might get into trouble. Starbucks doesn't like it when you bother their customers.
