ZENN Electric Car
Zero Emission, No Noise
The earth-friendly future is here with ZENN, the Zero Emission, No Noise fully-featured electric vehicle. In addition to requiring no gasoline, the ZENN distinguishes itself with a comfort, convenience and utility no other Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV) can match. And with its affordability and economical operation, it offers remarkable value.
The ZENN can be recharged anywhere by simply plugging into a standard electrical outlet and can be ready to go in as little as 4 hours. At only pennies per mile to operate and with minimal maintenance requirements, the ZENN is the ideal choice for consumers and businesses alike.
Proven design, extraordinary comfort and worry-free operation.
The ZENN’s aluminum-alloy chassis has been widely tested under a variety of real-world settings and meets or exceeds FMVSS500 standards. Its quality, durability and customer satisfaction are fully established. The lightweight exterior ABS panels are rustproof and dent resistant for long-term durability.
With a fully enclosed three-door hatchback, it more than comfortably seats a driver and passenger. The ZENN is available with features found in conventional vehicles such as air conditioning, power windows, power locks, remote keyless entry, wipers, defrost, heater, panoramic sunroof and more yet is surprisingly affordable. And its 13 cubic feet of storage carries a lot of cargo.
And then there’s the comfort of worry-free operation. A ZENN eliminates the replacement and repair costs of oil changes, oil filters, exhaust and expensive tune-ups associated with internal combustion engines in regular gas-guzzling vehicles. Brake wear is also greatly limited due to the ZENN’s lower driving speed and regenerative braking feature.
Of course, eliminating harmful emissions is just part of the story. A ZENN also makes compelling economic sense.
First, there’s the price with a low initial ownership investment. Second, there’s the fact that it costs up to ten times less to drive an electric vehicle than one with a conventional internal combustion engine.
According to a recent study conducted by the Green Car Institute, Low Speed Vehicle users replaced up to 90% of city-core trips previously made with a conventional car.
At a fraction of the cost, a ZENN can easily meet the transportation needs of many urban-dwellers. So, whether this is the first, second or third car in your driveway, using a ZENN whenever possible for your shorter haul trips makes great economic and environmental sense.
There is a lot of misinformation concerning electric vehicles. To get a better understanding of the facts, it’s important to also address a few of the myths.
Myth 1: Reliable electric vehicles are years away.
The ZENN is available for purchase right now. And our network of Retailers is growing all the time. Many states offer substantial incentives and rebates in recognition of the role the ZENN plays in reducing harmful emissions.
Myth 2: Electric vehicles are little more than golf carts.
It’s true that many other electric vehicles are built on golf cart platforms, and have no roofs or doors. A ZENN, however, is different. It’s a fully-enclosed, three-door hatchback built on a proven, road-tested chassis. It has all the comfort features you would expect from a city vehicle.
Myth 3: It takes too long to charge an electric vehicle.
Charging a ZENN is as easy as charging your cell phone. Simply plug it into a conventional electric outlet at night and in the morning, it will be fully charged. If you’re short on time, as little as four hours charging gives you 80% capacity from a completely “empty” tank. Most importantly, you ‘fill up’ at home, and eliminate wasted time standing outside at the gas pump.
Myth 4: Electric vehicles are costly to maintain.
A ZENN has significantly less parts than a typical car. You’ll never need to change the oil, replace a filter or a muffler. And, of course, there’s no need for emission testing and the operating costs are up to a tenth of a typical car.
A ZENN runs solely on one system: electrical. In comparison, even the most efficient hybrid vehicle has two systems to look out for - internal combustion and electric. And they still have thousands of parts, including complex controllers needed to switch between the two systems.
As a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of electric vehicles, our goal is to provide drivers with a quality urban transportation solution that positively impacts our environment and greatly reduces operating cost. Working with our internationally respected partners, we bring the world’s finest zero-emission vehicles to you - setting the standard for what electric vehicles can be. The culmination of this passion for quality is the ZENN, the luxury Neighborhood Electric Vehicle.
