The Performance and Value Leader In Electric Vehicles!


The ZEV4100 offers 17% more power and up to 50% more range than any competitors 3500 watt bikes which cost the same or more.

The ZEV4100 is the hill climber and faster accelerating version of the ZEV3600 Lithium --but the 4100 has 14% more torque for only $166 additional. (The 3600 only exists to comply with specific power limiting state laws)

For the EEC countries the ZEV4100 is made as a 4000 watt to comply with power/speed restrictions

The ZEV4100 is made in two different versions.

    ZEV4100 Lithium max performance - $5899

    ZEV4100 Silicone/Lead Cost Fighter - $4325

Speed              - 80 kph / 50 mph

Range - depends upon terrain, weather, load.  Our range is measured on flat land on standard day conditions. 

                          - 20 miles at full throttle

                         - 36 miles at 40 mph

                            - 55 miles at 28 mph

                          - 65 miles at 12 mph

 Lithium 4100 Curb Weight   - 284 lbs / 129 kg

Gross Weight - 759 lbs / 345 kg (bike and load)

Battery capacity in lithium of 2.86 Kwh.

Compare the ZEV4100 to the best of the Chinese 3500 watt scooters.  The Chinese bikes sell for just $195 less but have 600 watts less and 15% less torque.

Compare the ZEV4100 to the best of the Chinese scooters which have only a 2 month warranty instead of the 2 year industry leading Z Electric Vehicle warranty - but cost only $200 less than a genuine ZEV.

Compared to the ZEV4100 with the Lithium batteries:

  • The L is less expensive. 
  •  Acceleration is slightly slower due both to the battery characteristics and the fact that the Lead bike weighs approximately 190 kg / 419 lbs, which is more than the lithium battery bike.
  • Battery life --current owners having this bike are still running after 5 years and still going.  The lead silicate  cost approximately only 1/2 as much as the lithium batteries.
  • Lead battery systems do not require battery management systems like the lithium battery.  So that means a lot less parts to go wrong over time.  This also means that the 4100 can be upgraded to a 6000 in the future with just a controller, one battery, and a new charger.

The Silicate lead battery used by ZEV are a completely different battery than the old lead sulfuric acid battery.

• They have only about 10% of the internal resistance of the old sulfuric acid battery. This allows these batteries to be charged in ½ the time of normal lead acid battery.
• The discharge ability is much better allowing rapid vehicle acceleration with up to 4.5 times the ability to discharge without damage.
• There is little or no temperature increases during charging or discharging.
The battery is far less sensitive to temperature being able to work normally at -50 C.
• The battery has no memory.
• The electrolyte is the ultimate green battery fluid as it can be used as a fertilizer.
• The shelf life is in excess of 12 months without losing charge. So an unused vehicle does not run itself down.
The battery are non explosive.
• The battery can be recharged at high currents of .8 to 1 C.
• High discharge rates are not a problem given the low internal resistance.

• There is not acid mist produced by charging.
• The battery can be fully deep charged through over 500 cycles
• The energy storage to weight ratio is about 24% better than lead acid.

The ZEV4100L is a performer. It will outrun and out climb all competitors or any others in its price range - , and has more range than any of the competitor equivalent models.
