The Zenn Car Is Not Your Daddy’s Golf Cart

ZennThe ZENN (Zero Emission No Noise) electric vehicle is not your Daddy’s golf cart. The Zenn 2.22 looks more like an SUV and have many cool features, but is actually regulated by the U. S. government the same way as a golf cart. As such, the Zenn 2.22 (there is also a deluxe 2.22LX version) is limited to 25 mph and comes under the classification as a neighborhood electric vehicle (NEV) and may not be taken onto highways.

Be that as it may, for around town use the Zenn vehicles are able to achieve up to 245 mpge (miles per gallon equivalent) while costing only pennies in electricity to run. The Zenn 2.22 is recharged through a standard 120-volt outlet and takes 4 hours to charge to 80-percent and 8 hours to charge to full capacity.

The Zenn cars use 6 gel lead acid batteries, with 2 in the front and 4 in the rear. The vehicle also helps to recharge itself through regenerative braking. According to the manufacturer, the Zenn cars eliminate 6 tons of CO2 emissions per year compared to standard automobiles.

It may not be a Tesla Roadster or Venturi Fetish, but the price is certainly attractive at around $13,000 to $15,000.
