ZAP Acquires Interest in Electric Wheel Motor Company

Unternehmen und Markt

zap_wheel-motor-zapino Electric transportation pioneer ZAP announced that it has acquired an ownership interest in an electric motor company to develop and manufacture a new line of wheel motors for future vehicle developments and global distribution.

Under the agreement, ZAP is collaborating and investing in the development of a line of wheel motors for various types of electric vehicles, from an electric bike or scooter to an electric car. ZAP and its partner have also agreed to work together on the optimum process for manufacturing all motors and controllers. ZAP has been granted exclusive rights to the wheel motors under the agreement for international distribution.


"So many have focused on batteries as a way to improve the performance of electric vehicles, but wheel motors are truly a giant leap forward," said Gary Starr, who manages product development for ZAP. "Today's ZAP wheel motor vehicles can nearly double the range of similar vehicles we brought to market ten years ago."

ZAP and their partner expect to increase the power, performance and efficiency of wheel motors through the use of a proprietary, brushless, multi-pole wheel-motor technology. ZAP is developing a 7000-watt wheel motor for larger vehicle applications.

ZAP was one of the first electric vehicle companies to market wheel motor powered vehicles with its ZAPPY3 electric scooter, which uses a 350-watt motor. Last year, ZAP introduced the Zapino scooter with its 3000-watt wheel motor, which ZAP says is one of the most powerful systems available on the market today.

Wir kennen ja schon den Satz mit (ZAP-)X .....
