2006 Zenn Electric Car Zero Emission No Noise
needs new batteries, will go about 5 miles at 25 mph with current batteris, comes with manual, radio face plate, and 2 keys, both rims on the passenger side have chips, don't know the mileage since it is not charged but it was at 2049 on 3/2/2010.
Second thing is deciding how to improve the performance:
I'd like 35-40 mph and EV Grin producing acceleration. High Performance Golf Cars, used to make a ZENN 35 MPH kit using a Brushless 3 phase AC induction motor but it sold for $3k .has a DC motor rated at 5 HP.
Curb weight: Approximately 1,200 lbs.
0-25 9.2 seconds
Any advice on affordable lithium or information on improving the performance will be very much appreciated!
