Do you know what a neighborhood EV is? It’s a new breed of eco friendly low speed cars geared for urban commuters and for commercial fleets such as gated communities, airports, resorts, municipalities and college campuses. Since they’re classified as NEV’s, neighborhood electric vehicles, they are usually limited to only 35 MPH roads.
Essentially the car is for those who normally don’t need to travel far or long. The Zenn EV car is manufactured in Canada by the zero-emission ZMC, Zenn Motor Company and the car is all electric, not a hybrid.
The low speed neighborhood EV gets 30 to 35 miles per charge when fully charged. To fully recharge, it takes about 8 hours although ZMC mentions one gets about 80% driveability at about 4 hours of charging. You just plug it in to a standard 120 electrical outlet from your home.
Incentives Available Till June 2009
The MSRP on the Zenn NEV is $15,995, but through the end of June 2009 one can snatch one up for $9,995 due to two incentives. First is a rebate of $4,995 available to those who join the Zenn Ambassador program and second is a federal tax credit of $1,250.
If you’re in the market for an uncomplicated, all electric, zero-emission, good looking, low speed, all weather, fully equipped, two seat vehicle, give the Zenn NEV a test drive.
