Bramo has developed an electric motor cycle called the Enertia.  The motorbike uses a permanent magnet DC motor and 76.8V Valance Li battery pack to give it a top speed of 50 mph and a range of up to 45 miles.  

 

The bike is based around a carbon fiber monocoque body gives makes the Enertia exceptionally light, it weighs in at just 275 lbs, has a 55 inch wheel base and a seat height of 33 inches.  Power output can be manually adjusted from 40% to 100%, allowing the rider to select for range or performance.  It is designed to carry just one person.

Zero Motorcycles

Zero Motorcycles have been selling a high performance electric dirt bike for some time now and have finally begun to offer a street legal electric motorcycle called the Zero-S.  The Zero-S is built around an aluminum frame that makes it very light.  It is powered by a 31hp electric motor driven from a 4KWhr lithium ion battery pack.  

 

The Zero-S can top out at 60mph (95kph) and the range claimed is up to 60 miles (97Km) although I would expect somewhat less usable range in real world driving.   Stopping is accomplished by front and rear hydraulic disk brakes with the front brake being operated by hand and the rear by a foot brake.  The bike weighs in at only 225lbs.

 

Their web site isn't very clear about charging but it appears that the Zero-S can be recharged from either a 110V or a 220V supply with a full charge in less that 4 hours at 220V. 

 

In Los Angeles you can find then at Hollywood Electrics

In Florida they are sold at Riva Motor Sports in Pompano Beach, FL

EVT

 

NEWS - 9/23/2006 - The 2007 EVT has a brushless motor solving one of the few issues with this scooter

EVT is a manufacturer of electric scooters based in Taiwan.  They recently concluded an exclusive distribution agreement  with Bravo Electric Vehicles to distribute their line of electric scooters in the USA.

 

Electric Vehicle Technologies is taking the basic scooters shipped from Taiwan and upgrading them to meet DOT specifications.  

 

The 4000e seats two people.  Its four sealed PbA battery gives a range of up to 25 miles and a top speed of 30mph. 

 

Check out my test ride of the 4000e

 

The 168 seats one person.  It uses four sealed lead acid batteries to give it a Range of up to 25 Miles and a  top speed of 30 mph.    

 

Check out my test ride of the 168

 

The EVT Tricycle is now available in Europe and Taiwan.  The Class V trike is driven by hub motors in the two rear wheels and has a top speed of 45kph (30mph).  It has a 48V PbA battery system but I don't have an indication of range.

 

In addition they are developing a new scooter called the T-Rex which should be available some time in 2004.  The T-REX is being designed in-house by evtworld.  It will have a top speed of 45mph, artificially limited to give extended range.  They are also designing an electric ATV that will be targeted at local government applications such as parking enforcement.

 

Electric Vehicle Technologies is in the process of setting up a dealer network.

EVTAmerica

EVTAmerica is now selling a line of electric scooters that are very similar in style to the EVT scooters,  Their first offernign,  the Z-20 Electric Scooter has just been replaced for the 2009 model year with the R-30.

 

The R30 is a retro looking two seat scooter that is powered by a 3000W brushless DC hub motor, Kelly controller, and a 60V sealed lead acid battery pack.  This scooter weights about 320lbs including batteries.  Top speed is 45mph and range is quoted as 30-45 miles although I would expect usable range to be about 20 miles in real world riding.

 

The Z-30 is a more modern looking scooter that also seats two and comes with a 2.5KW hub motor that is powered by six 35ah seated lead acid batteries giving it a top speed of 45mph and an expected range of 30 - 45 miles although I would expect about 20 miles as the usable range in real world riding.  Stopping is accomplished by disk brakes on both wheels.

 

They also offer the EVTA 4000e and the EVTA 168 that look identical to their EVT siblings

The base scooter is a 2 seat scooter with a 4000W rear hub motor driven by a LiFEPO4 battery pack that offers a top speed around 80kps (50mph) and a range of up to 90 kilometers (55 miles) on a charge.  The battery is projected to last up to 2000 charge cycles.  Stopping is accomplished with disk brakes front and rear with the front brake offering ABS.

 

They also produce an 6000W scooter that offers speeds up to 100kps (62mph) and have a 12000W scooter with a larger body to accomodate more battery capacity.  Target top speed for the 12000W scooter is 120kph (75mph) and improved hill climbing ability.

 

Most impressive is the 8 years or 50,000 mile warranty on the lithium batteries

RMartin

Rmartin is the US distributor of the Chinese built electric scooter called the eFun D which they market under the name EVD.  The scooter, which seats two, is powered by a 3000 watt brushless hub motor and comes equipped with either lead acid or lithium iron phosphate batteries.  Stopping is accomplished with antilock disk brakes on both wheels.

 

When equipped with 50 amp hour VRLA (lead acid) batteries the scooters offer a top speed of 50mph.  RMartin quote a range of about 50 miles but I would expect considerably less range in real world riding.

 

With 60 amp hour Thundersky Lithium batteries top speed increases to 55mph while quoted range is stretched to 60 miles.  Again I would expect less range in real world riding but the lithium batteries are likely to produce ranges much closer to specified range.

 

Both the VRLA and Li versions offer good hill climbing ability.

 

The lead acid scooters come with a less than stellar 3 month warranty while the lithium battery version has a six month warranty

 

Because of the 50mph+ top speed the EVD is classified as a motorcycle and will require a full motorcycle license in most state.

For 2010 they have upgraded the system to use Hi-Power Lithium batteries which increase the top speed to 60-70 miles per hour (customizable) while increasing the range to around 35 miles.  The Lithium powered version has an MSRP of $8500

Evader

Evader corporation has a line of electric motorcycles and scooters.  According to a recent press release the first batch of these scooters was shipped to the US on July 10 and should now be ready for delivery.   Its first product is a 1000W scooter, called the EV1000, that will retail for $2499.  They claim that the 48V system will give the scooter a top speed of 30mph and a range of 45 miles.  I would not expect more than 15-20 miles of range in real world riding.  It will come with either a 110V charger or a dual voltage 110/220 Volt charger which they claim will recharge the system in 2-6 hours.  They also offer the Rally which offers the same range and performance as the EV1000 but has a slightly different body including twin headlamps is a two seat model.  Price on this model is also $2499

 

These scooters are built in China and Evader has spent a lot of time resolving the usual quality issues.  Evader believe that these have not been solved and are ready to start rolling out the scooters.  

 

Note, Evader did offer me the opportunity to test ride this scooter but I wasn't able to take them up on there offer.  They claim that the range and top speeds quoted in their web site are real world numbers.  I haven't seen any independent testing of these scooters so I have made the assumption that range is usually quite a bit less than the manufacturer quotes.   I may be proved wrong on this once the vehicles begin to hit the streets.

 

In Bozeman, MT check them out at ecoauto Inc.

 

Also at Veicules Ecologicos de Maria Jose da Silva Santos in Porto, Portugal

Skeuter

Skeuter, based in Los Angeles, CA, distributer a line of electric scooters called the Skeuter I, Skeuter Z, and Skeuter Condor.  These scooters look like they are build in China but I haven't found who manufactures them yet.  

 

The I and Z models are offered in both 600W and 1500 W versions while the Condor is offered in 1500W only.  I consider the 600W to be way underpowered unless you are extremely petit and ride only on flat terrain so I will be quoting specs for the 1500W version only.  

 

Each version is powered by a 48V Sealed Lead Acid battery pack or an optional Li Ion Pack .

 

The I model uses a brushless hub motor to give a top speed of about 30 mph so it will register as a moped in most states.  It can be charged from a 110V or 220V outlet in about 6 hours using the 2 amp charger and range is quoted as 20-30 miles although I would expect more like 15 miles in real world riding.  The I includes front disk brakes but their web site doesn't mention rear brakes.  The I seats 2 people.

 

The Z model uses a brushless hub motor to give a top speed of about 30 mph so it will register as a moped in most states.  It can be charged from a 110V or 220V outlet in about 6 hours using the 3 amp charger and range is quoted as 40 miles although I would expect more like 15 miles in real world riding.  The Z includes front disk brakes but their web site doesn't mention rear brakes.  The z seats 1 person.

 

The Condor has a more reto styling that the other two models but still uses a brushless hub motor to give a top speed of about 30 mph so it will register as a moped in most states.  It can be charged from a 110V or 220V outlet in about 6 hours using the 3 amp charger and range is quoted as 40 miles although I would expect more like 15 miles in real world riding.  The Condor includes front disk brakes and rear drum brakes.  It will seat 2 people.

 

The Skeuter warranty looks a little screwy, the warranty is supposed to be for 360 days with a 90 day battery warranty.  However, the fine print says that you must notify Skeuter of any defects within 72 hours of receiving your skeuter "no exceptions" so presumably if your controller blows up 5 days after you get your scooter you are SOL.  I assume that they mean that you must tell them about any initial problems within 72 hours but it will pay to get clarification on this.  The warranty also says that they will ship the parts but you are responsible for installing them so if you aren't comfortable with tools check with your dealer on their policy before buying.

Kasea

Kasea are now making an electric scooter called the ZE 2000.  This scooter offers a 2000 watt hub motor to give it a top speed of 42 mph, so it would register as a motorcycle in most states.  Range from the 48V Silicone battery pack is quoted as 40 miles but I wouldn't expect more than 25 miles in real world driving.

 

The scooter weighs a mere 285 pounds is 70" X 27" X 45" with a 49" wheelbase and 11" ground clearance.  It can carry two people up to a maximum capacity of 320 pounds.

Stopping is accomplished by front disk brakes and rear drums.  The scooter weights in at around 104Kg (230lbs) and seats two people.

E-MAX

The e-max scooter, was origianlly produced in Germany, from 2003 until 2006 but the company fell on hard times and entered into bankruptcy.  The company assets were acquired by a group of investors who formed e-max ev's Germany.

 

The new company turned to Paolo Valcic in Italy who designed a whole new line of scooters.  The scooters are built in a production facility in China.

 

The company now offers a range of six scooters, the 90S, 110S, 100L, 120L, 140L and 190L.  The S in the name indicates that the scooter has Silicone batteries while the L designates Lithium batteries.

 

All of the scooters with the exception of the 190L offer a 4000W motor but are limited to a tops speed of 45mph to classify as a moped under EEC rules.  The 190L has a 7000W motor giving it a tops speed of up to 100kph.

 

All six models appear to be the same design and all of them can seat two people.  They each have hydraulic disk brakes on both front and back wheels and each of them runs on a 48V system.  The major difference in the scooters appears to be in their battery capacity.  The 90S has a capacity of 45AHrs offering a range of 45-60 kilometers.  The 110 60AHrs and a range of 70-90 Kilometers.  The 100L has a capacity of 40AHrs and a range of 60-80 Kilometers.  The 120L steps up to 60AHrs for a range of 90-115 Kilometers.  The 140L offers 90AHrs and a range of 130-150 Kilometers.  The battery capacity and range of the 190L hasn't currently been announced.

UrbanMover

UrbanMover markets a line of "Vespa Style" electric scooters called Lexola which they manufacture in China.  The line consists of three scooter, all 2000W models, the G2000, G2000R, and the G2000SX.  All of these scooters appear to seat two people.

 

The scooters are all powered by brushless DC Hub Motors drive from a 48V silicon battery pack   The G2000SX comes with a 38AH pack while G2000 and the G2000R both come with a 47AH pack.  Each has a top speed of 67kph (42mph) and they claim a range of 48km (30 miles) although I would expect range to be somewhat less in real world riding.

 

Stopping is accomplished by front disk brakes and rear drums.  

 

The scooters can all be charged from a standard 240V outlet.  The specs also say that they can also accept 110V so these scooters are ready for the US market.  The web site say they are being sold in the US although they are probably being sold under a different brand name.

SWAP

SWAP Electric Scooter from Taiwan

I don't have too much info on these scooters but the general talk is that they are excellent.

Erato

Erato is a Chinese company that builds a lot of the electric scooters sold under a variety of brand names such as E-Runner and E-Cruiser These models are very similar, they both seat two people and each offers a 1600W and a 2200W version.  The 1600W version uses a brushless hub motor and is powered by a 48V pack comprising four 12V silicone batteries.  The 2200W version also uses a brushless hub motor but has a 60V pack which adds a fifth 12V silicone battery.  The 1600W versions top at out 30 mph so they will register as a moped in most states.  The 2200W versions have a top speed of 40 mph so will require a full motorcycle license in most states.  An Torque Boost button is provided for quicker starting.  The Torque Boost also holds the scooter in low speed to help in hill climbing at speeds below 20mph.  Range is quoted at 40 - 50 miles although I wouldn't really expect more than about 25-30 miles in the stop and go traffic of large cities.

 

The E-Runner is priced at $2600 for the 1600W version and $3100 for the 2200W version.  The E-Cruiser is priced at $2800 for the 1600W version and $3300 for the 2200W version. 

 

In Northern California it can be found at Green Motors

I have had mixed reviews of the Liberator.  Of the three people I have heard from who own one of these, one had and issue with limited range, one had a controller problem, and one has had a good experience.  Read Sam Arquilla's review..


If any owner out there would like to email evfinder  and tell me their experience I would love to pass on the information to prospective buyers
