Eco-Friendly Territory

Don’t look now but the 50 Corridor just got sustainably street legal! Cost Less Auto, located in Rancho Cordova, has us all revved-up, and for a good, responsible reason. (And let’s face it, when was the last time we were driven to report about anything requiring a drastically inflated tank of gas? Exactly.) Well, these days Style is pleased to report that there is truth in advertising – Cost Less Auto, anyone? Now that locals have access to the area’s only line of electric cars, trucks, and scooters manufactured by ZAP — a company committed to repaving the way we think about transport.  Among the cache of available eco-rides at Cost Less Auto is the affordable new city-speed electric car design called the ZAP Xebra. And, with gases tipping the scales to where no one wants to travel (least of all commuters), rest easy because the Xebra uses no gas (yeah, really!), which not only fuels our conscience, but also comes as simply great news for our collective wallets. And get this: the Xebra is actually a car you want to be seen motoring (yet another perk we love). The vehicle comes in both truck and sedan configurations specifically designed to be driven at slower speeds (think 40 MPH). So while your dreams of being Jeff Gordon will have to remain just dreams, you may be able to shell out for some driving lessons with all the extra cash you’ll save. Of course the most important thing about this win-win scenario is that by driving an eco-friendly vehicle, you are putting the pedal to sustainable metal. So what do you say — isn’t it time to stop spinning your wheels? We think so. Start your engines at 1940 Zinfandel Drive, Rancho Cordova, call 916-859-0007, or visit For more on ZAP, visit
