Beyond reducing pollution to promote a healthier environment, the design of the Zenith all-electric shuttle van is focused on safety and comfort. The high roof body, low step ground clearance and large sliding door make the shuttle comfortable for passengers. Electric propulsion is very quiet when compared to a gas engine. The van is fully insulated for interior temperature control and exterior road noise reduction. Specially designed seating is both comfortable and durable. Even the floor is “green”. The low VOC emission, slip resistant vinyl flooring material was designed for high wear environments. Wheelchair lifts, automatic sliding doors, and steps are standard features. Rear heaters, air conditioning, and back-up cameras are optional accessories.
Depending upon the combination of payload, weather, and terrain, the new Zenith all-electric shuttle van has an average 80-mile range with a recharge time of 6.5 hours. A 4-hour charger and upgraded battery with a 100 or 145-mile range are available options. It has a top speed of 55mph, a tight turning radius and utilizes a regenerative braking system to help recharge the batteries.
“In addition to being environmentally friendly, our shuttle vans also reduce long-term maintenance costs. No gas engine also means no scheduled downtime or cost for oil changes, air or gas filters, antifreeze, transmission because there are none in an all-electric vehicle” said Christine Smith, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Zenith Motors. “That can be a savings of up to $100,000 in operating costs over an average service life."
There are a number of government incentive and voucher programs that can help reduce the initial vehicle cost to make the purchase more competitive with gas vehicles. The Zenith Warranty is 100,000 miles on the battery, 60,000 on the drivetrain and 36,000 bumper to bumper.
Zenith Motors is doing its part to help reduce carbon emissions while also reducing shuttle van ownership costs by eliminating the routine maintenance required by gas vehicles maximizing up-time while contributing to a healthier community. We help governments, hospitals, hotels, airports, commercial delivery, non-profits and service businesses be environmentally friendly while saving money at the same time.
