"The way to change the world is to build world changing products our     customers use to better their lives and the world."

ZEV designs, and manufactures:
  • The world’s longest-range production electric motor scooters in standard battery pack configurations at real highway speeds. (To 283 km / 150 miles measured at 55 mph / 80 kmh).  More range is available with range extender packages in some models.
  • The world’s fastest electric motor scooters with speeds over 150 km/h (93 mph) in any of our standard LRC scooter.
  • The world’s most powerful electric motor scooter with up to 20,000 watts of continuous power and 30 kw performance mode.
  • The world's most fuel efficient vehicles with 630 MpgE at 55 mph and to over 1200 MpgE at lower speeds within our scooter and motorcycle line.  In the 130 mile 2016 Vetter Challenge, the stock ZEV LRC ran less watts per mile power use than two ZERO based streamliners in the competition (which each had larger battery packages), beaten only by 3% by a purpose built streamliner.
  • The world's fastest production electric bicycle.  34 mph
  • A full line of cargo and delivery 2 and 3 wheel vehicles.
  • The world's only highway capable trike tilting electric motor scooter.

ZEV is the oldest electric motorcycle or highway capable scooter company in the world. The operation started in the spring of 2006.

ZEV products feature the bleeding edge of available EV alternative fuel technology

Motor Inside the Wheel Design (Hub Motors)
  • ZEV is the only company in the world to use oil-cooled hub motors inside the rear wheel. This extra lubrication radically increases motor life and cooling for the longest possible life.   
  • Hub motors (also called wheel motors) eliminate belts or chain drives for more efficiency yielding higher range.  This design gives us the lowest total or moving part count for maximum reliability and lowest maintenance.
  • ZEV is the only company in the world with models having dual hub motors in the rear drive wheels for maximum power and flexibility.
  • All of the 13, 14, 16, 17 inch hub motors have an extra set of hall sensors already built into the motor and pre-wired as a redundant standby set. 
Multi-Speed Electronic Transmission
  • Each bike is installed with an electronic 3 speed controller that acts like a transmission.  A no clutch controller, which boosts range up to 50% and hill climbing ability up to 35% over competing vehicles.  This controller varies both the amps and the volts at the touch of a button.
Lithium Batteries
  • Our largest standard battery pack has a capacity of 10 Kwh, the largest battery pack available in any scooter.   Available to 12.9 Kwh
  • Each battery pack is built to standard sizes so that as new battery technologies become available, your ZEV is ready to upgrade. No ZEV customer will ever be locked in to a single battery supplier.
Our scooters and motorcycles are hand-built. Every single bike is test-driven and test-charged three times over several days before shipping. Not one other company in the world invests that time to ensure your bike arrives without defect.

ZEV has been in production since 2008.  Customers have bikes on the road with over 37,000 miles on them
