    General An Electric Scooter That Hits 113 KPH

    Worry less about the environment, and more about personal safety

    From vehicle-maker ZEV comes the ZEV7000, an unassuming electric two-seater that nevertheless packs some power under the hood. 28 batteries storing up to 3.84 kilowatts allows the scooter to reach a top speed of 113 kph (or 70 mph).

    Ride the ZEV7000 at more reasonable speeds however, and the manufacturer promises an average range of 88 to 122 kilometers (or 55 to 70 miles). The electric motor can generate up to 240 newton-meters of torque for those hill climbs, and is managed by a three-speed automatic transmission. Regenerative breaking recovers some juice, while the heavy battery pack is situated as low as possible for stability.

    The ZEV7000 weighs a total of 345 kilos (or 759 pounds), and comes with a 10 percent federal tax credit thanks to its environmentally friendly powertrain. Unfortunately, saving $804.42 still leaves $7237 to pay for.

    But buyers interested in a low-cost electric vehicle (the manufacturer claims a full charge will cost an average of 10 cents in terms of utility bills) should consider getting a ZEV7000. At the very least, ZEV needs money to hire better designers!

    @ 3.3 Lakhs, and only a range of 90-120kms between charges, I would better go for "any" other bike than this one.

    $7237 ooooops, that's toooo high.
    But that's good that human's are achieving something good to save the environment.
    But this process should speeded up.

    When we can get Yo EXL electric byke for just about 45k+taxes that gives u

    Performance
    Maximum Speed 55 km/hr @75kg
    - Power Mode 35 - 55 km/hr
    - Economy Mode 30 - 35 km/hr
    Range per charge 70 - 75 km @ 75 kg (at Economy Mode)
    60 - 65 km @ 130 kg (at Economy Mode)

    which is more than enough for most daily usage, why look at foreign ebykes that claim high speeds but cost a BOMB!!!

    electric cars and 2 wheelers are the only option to solve the upcoming Oil crysis !
    Hydrogen based vehicles are a better option i guess as the batteries if created in bulk will pose a big problem of disposal of lead & the prices need to be lowered inorder to keep it in reach of mango people
    Check this out, reportedly one of the fastest electric car !

    Car or bike "pooling" is the best way atm for reducing the environment emissions IMO.
