Ian Clifford resigns as CEO of ZENN

Ian Clifford has resigned from his position as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ZENN Motor Company Inc (ZMC) and has assumed the role of Founder and Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors of ZMC. Clifford, who founded ZMC in 2001, will continue to play a key role in defining ZENN’s future vision and strategic plans, the company said.

The purpose of this transition is twofold. Firstly, this makes sense in the context of our focus to preserve cash and I am pleased that my move can contribute towards this objective. Secondly, and most importantly, it allows me to remain dedicated to positively maintaining our key relationship with our technology partner, EEStor, Inc.

—Ian CLifford

Brian Cott, who joined ZMC in 2006 as President and Chief Operating Officer, shortly after ZMC became a publicly listed company, became President and CEO on CLifford&rsqou;s resignation.

ZMC has a Technology Agreement with EEStor that provides certain exclusive and non-exclusive rights to purchase and deploy EEStor’s EESU technology. The EESU is a long-promised high-power-density multi-layered barium titanate ceramic ultracapacitor that the companies say is expected to provide energy densities of more than 450 Wh/kg and more than 700 Wh/L; charge in minutes; and have extremely long life.

In 2009, ZMC switched its business strategy from selling electric vehicles to distributing an electric drivetrain powered by EEStor, once the EEstor EESU units became available. (Earlier post.)

This EEStor technology is awesome! Their energy densities are insane! Can't wait to get an EEStor EESU powered car or truck!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but have not one of these so-called EEStor units ever been released to the public, or even made available for inspection by the public?
Isn't the EEStor story all along the same lines as the Aptera story?
