Zbee - The Beginning of Energy Autonomous Transportation



Elevator Pitch

We have developed the worlds most super efficient clean vehicle to meet the transportation needs of the 21st century. Our electric vehicle, Zbee, is ultra light to reach unprecedented efficiency and driving economy. And we are on our way to make Zbee the first energy autonomous vehicle available for everyone. This is only possible if we keep our focus on reinventing every part of the product through multifunctional design, simplification and light weight approach.

Product


Zbee is an electric vehicle for short distance transportation of up to three people and smaller goods. It is ultra-light to reach unprecedented efficiency and driving economy.

In addition to energy and environmental efficiency we strive for very high passive safety and have demonstrated very good results in crash test of the present body. Zbee is type-approved in EU as an L2e-vehicle with two speed versions, 45 and 25 kph.

Why we are ecofriendly

Today’s methods of transportation are simply not sustainable. In 40 years time, the number of vehicles worldwide is set to double.

Our planet cannot handle this sharp increase in resource usage and pollution. While fossil fuels become increasingly scarce, global warming will wreak havoc on our ecosystem. As an increasing majority of the global population now reside in cities, we need to seriously rethink urban transportation.

It’s not as simple as just pushing electrical vehicles. We need to consider the bigger picture and think about how to use the earth’s resources in a more efficient and sustainable way.

By utilizing a small and lightweight vehicle we will create less emissions than conventional vehicles and keep a good energy spiral that enable us to less batteries rather than more to get the desirable range.

Together with solar charging, a connectivity solution and intelligent controlling of the system we will achieve the most disruptive transportation solution since the wheel was invented. And that we only use three of.
