Zap and Youngman reach a deal for North American bus market.

Youngman Automotive Group, one of China's leading bus manufacturers, has signed a second exclusive distribution agreement with US electric car pioneer ZAP granting the rights to distribute its full line of buses in North America, the two companies announced jointly today.

Youngman has become a leading manufacturer of buses in China under the leadership of Chairman Pang Qingnian. The Company specializes in luxury motor coaches for tourism and corporate use as well as high quality public transportation for municipalities. Youngman's motor coaches have been issued a five star rating by the Chinese Ministry of Construction. The Company also builds high-quality commercial trucks and recently received one of a limited number of licenses to make automobiles from the Chinese government. A leader in China's manufacturing sector, Mr. Pang was recently elected as a Congressman for Zhejiang province.

"The more I look at the emerging market for advanced technology vehicles, the more I see that ZAP is one of the only companies offering a selection of vehicles available for sale today," said Youngman Chairman Pang. "Buses can only enhance ZAP's overall business plan and I decided, rather than wait until the joint venture vehicles become available, to do something today that can benefit both companies. Also, my family and I have come to know Mr. Steve Schneider over the past year and this has become much more than a business relationship. I have complete confidence and trust in him and working together I believe we can make a difference for the world environment."

Youngman is currently manufacturing and exporting six bus platforms available in 71 different configurations with the capacity to build 10,000 units annually. Youngman and ZAP expect to introduce buses using electric, hybrid and other advanced technology power trains as part of their joint venture. While today's agreement is based on conventional bus technologies, ZAP CEO Steve Schneider is looking forward to marketing energy efficient buses, particularly those that run on compressed natural gas.

"These buses are highly profitable and will add to our marketing and distribution strategy," said ZAP CEO Steve Schneider. "Youngman is already exporting to Russia, Germany, other parts of Europe and the Pacific Rim and we look forward to introducing these low-cost, high quality buses to the North American market. Initially our objective is to attract volume distribution to penetrate the market with a longer-term objective of creating economic growth and green collar jobs in California."

This is the second exclusive distribution agreement for ZAP with Youngman. In October 2007, the two companies signed a joint venture agreement to manufacture, market and distribute electric and hybrid vehicles for the passenger car, truck and bus markets. ZAP will focus on marketing and distribution while Youngman will contribute manufacturing and development resources. Albert Lam is the Chairman of the joint venture company as well as a member of ZAP's board of directors.

"Since joining ZAP I wanted to make a contribution towards the company's future. Bringing ZAP and Youngman together on this distributorship arrangement can take ZAP to the next level," said Mr. Lam, who stepped down as CEO of Lotus Engineering last year to be Chairman of the new joint venture company being established between ZAP and Youngman.

Lam added: "After completing a world tour with Steve Schneider and seeing the reactions on a global level from the manufactures, suppliers, distributors, and investors, I could not be more enthusiastic. The world is changing and it takes visionary companies with an entrepreneurial spirit like ZAP and Youngman to take a leadership role and make things happen."

I've noticed the Starliner model being offered, and I wondered: What if companies that made copies of the bus eg Zonda would sue Neoplan in China, since Chinese government favours local manufacturers.
It's an obvious "Watch this Space" issue.

Also, Neoplan is just Napoleon spelt differently and without the extra o. Is that intentional?
