We’re thrilled to announce the overwhelming success of Zapp Scooters debut in Traverse City, USA. This was Zapp’s first event in the United States, and our hence our first exposure to the market. Tony Posawatz, whom we announced as joining our Board Advisor team late last year led the charge in showcasing and unveiling the i300 Carbon to all press and media at the event. We couldn’t be prouder or happier with how everything turned out. Tony, who once headed GM’s Chevrolet Bolt hybrid electric car program did a phenomenal job in describing the product, our vision, and ambitions to…

Wherever you are right now, whatever device you’re browsing on, and whichever your tech company allegiance, there’s a good chance you’re reading this thanks to the power of modern Lithium-ion battery technology. Modern day society has been benefitting greatly from the lithium-ion battery. It powers our smart phones, electric vehicles, cameras, and frequently goes unnoticed. It’s been a strong contender in initiatives moving towards total green energy, and has enabled a great step forward in global connectivity. Yet, we still find ourselves experiencing the problem of our phone’s battery beginning to deteriorate. Things aren’t perfect. Imagine, it’s a cold day,…

True or false: “this morning could not get any worse.” False. FALSE! So very false, could not be more false. Picture this, you’re running late for something important, you walk out the front door and discover your bike (analog or otherwise) is precisely nowhere to be found… Is theft that big of deal? Bike theft is everywhere. The Crime Survey for England and Wales estimated 40,000 motorbikes were stolen in 2016 in the UK alone, which statistically means that your motorbike is at a 3.3% risk of danger each night it is parked randomly. Bike theft is cited as the…

In the world of EV’s, every step we take is to save time and energy. Each day we’re innovating the ways of becoming more sustainable, resilient, secure, and adaptable for the future. Today’s work of art is something straight out of a utopian sci-fi novel. It’s recently popped up on our radars as a plausible solution to some of the world’s electricity grid’s downfalls – and we’re excited to share it with you. Giving Context:V2G, What is it? V2G (Vehicle-to-grid), simply, is a technology that allows energy to be generated, stored in EV batteries, and transferred back into the grid…

Let’s look “big picture”. Where we are, and where we’re going. E-bikes, and e-transportation in general, have been taking strides into the mainstream for some time now, and we think they’re here to stay. As You Know What continues redefining and challenging our world, we know there are more questions-that-need-answers than ever before. New regulations are surfacing everyday, ways of life are fluctuating, and interactions between neighbors are shifting. While you may have pondered the good and bad about these recent changes, Zapp has been executing the best strategies on how to ease and transform into this new normal. Our…

Keep your eyes peeled. The transition to an electric vehicle infrastructure is pacing steadily into our daily landscapes. Sign posts with little electric icons speckle neighborhoods, highways, and parking lots, creating a wave of new behaviors. But the only personal thing at stake with shifting to electric is your habits. Habits change when something else catches our eye. When we’re promised something bigger and better, and when we see through the things we’ve known to be true. We’ve been relying on petrol stations (oil and gas monopolies) for major parts of the industrial and modern technology age. The reliability and…

Everything about rapid charging is quick. Though while it’s quick to top up your device, it’s also quick to burn out your battery entirely! Science says so. And we have a diagram to prove it.

Image credit: Purdue University image / Kejie Zhao: image generated at European Synchrotron Radiation Facility and the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource of SLAC National Laboratory We’re seeing a lot of red. Researchers at Purdue University in the United States, led by assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Purdue Keije Zhao, made an essential discovery whilst generating…

We know a lot about the benefits of electric vehicles. We know that they are a zero-emission form of transport and that means fewer greenhouse gases, cleaner air and a reduced impact on the ozone layer. We also know that if you compare the fuel efficiency of a power station creating electricity for EPVs against the fuel efficiency of a petrol-powered car, the power station is nearly twice as efficient! Another key benefit is that there are fewer parts in electric cars and electric motorcycles that need replacing and, therefore, disposing of or recycling. As the 2040 deadline for the…

Our word of the day is skeleton. When you look at our i300 carbon bike technology, the first thing you’ll notice is the ergonomic excellence that is our exoskeleton. It’s the foundation of our design and the launch point for our timeless ideas. It’s as out-of-the-box as you can get. Zapp is built on 3 pillars: sustainability, efficiency, and eternity. We started designing from scratch, and we do not design just for design sake. We’re jumping the gun on what will be expected from the design world, and carving a path for those looking to ditch design practices that have…

If you’re someone who gets off on replacing your devices often as new models are being released – then you’re almost certainly hoping your device will be making it unscathed from one year to the next. At the very least, you’re hoping for minimal repairs. And if staring at your deteriorating battery a year after purchase in disbelief is somehow becoming a recurring feeling, you’re not alone. But wouldn’t you rather a total solution as opposed to putting a plaster on the problem. When it comes to electric scooter brands, the cheap “plaster” solution is more common than not. Maintenance…
