ZEV products feature the bleeding edge of available EV alternative fuel technology
- 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.
- 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.
- Our largest standard battery pack has a capacity of 10kwh, the largest battery pack available in any scooter.
- 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.
