Swin Chatsuwan, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Zapp EV, said: “We’ve taken a well-researched approach from day one and the start of production is a major tipping point for Zapp. The standby commitment of $10 million provides a runway beyond start of production and paves the road for commercial rollout and launch activities in multiple countries. The i300 is highly fit-for-purpose in its use case, and we believe Zapp can scale quickly after rolling out in Europe and key Asian markets, including India.”
