Virtual ZAP Alias Electric Car
Special Guest Artist: Joseph Rajakaruna, ZAP Engineering. Born in Sri Lanka, Joe moved to the United States when he was very young. From an early age Joe says he was fascinated with the idea of how and why things worked. In college he was able to channel that interest into science and art. He says this combination challenged him greatly, but focused his automotive passion which led to a journey into the automotive industry. Through his education he was able to cover several areas of both manufacturing and design. He applied his coursework in a manufacturing setting at Honda of America Manufacturing and Visteon Automotive, formerly a division of Ford, where he learned the implementations of practical applications through various philosophies. Then he decided to return to school to finish his degree in transportation design.
