Good luck getting hold of a ZAP representative; I do believe the company 
has folded. They're certainly not taking calls. 

For what it's worth, when I bought my ZAP back in 09, I called and the 
lady I talked to counted the on-board charger as a "charging system". Gave 
me the maximum credit available. Might have been $1500, $750 for the car 
and $750 for the charging system. 

Good luck
