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

Hub Motors
  • ZEV is the only company in the world to use oil-cooled hub motors inside the rear wheel. Doing so gives us the lowest part count and moving part count for maximum reliability and lowest maintenance with the added bonus of no belts or chains.  The motors are more efficient than belt / chain drives yielding higher range.  The motors are the only only motors with extra lubrication for the highest possible life.
  • 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 inch hub motors have an extra set of hall sensors already built into the motor and prewired as a 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 battery pack has a capacity of 10kwh, the largest battery pack available in the industry. (Over 3 times larger than the Toyota Prius). 
  • 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 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 at our current location since 2008.  Customers have bikes on the road with over 23,000 miles on them
