ZAPPY3 Electric Scooter is Fun, Fast and Now it Folds
For all those times you wished you had an easy, affordable transportation alternative to take on the road, now the ZAPPY3 electric scooter has the flexibility of folding for easy storage in your trunk, boat or RV.
ZAPPY3 can benefit anyone who wants to leave their car behind and take a fun, easy and inexpensive alternative. ZAPPY3 is a three-wheeled scooter that runs up to 13 miles per hour, can run up to 17 miles on a single charge and plugs in anywhere with its portable off-board charger. Electric power makes it quiet, clean and adaptable for a variety of transportation scenarios: commuting, RVs, campgrounds, flea markets, car shows, rodeos, agricultural operations, factories, college campuses, supermarkets, airports, amusement parks, shopping centers, malls, museums, office buildings, and more. Use it like a bicycle, without all the work!
ZAPPY3 is truly for everyone, young or old, rich or poor, work or play. Three wheels make it very easy to learn and comfortable to ride. Advanced riders can enjoy better handling and can remove the seat for added visibility, performance and fun. Three-wheels also give it a 360° turning-radius, which allows it to navigate places few scooters can, like elevators.
And ZAPPY sure beats walking! This electric scooter makes a great pre-mobility scooter, thousands of dollars less than traditional mobility scooters. Perhaps you’re not ready for a full-fledged powered mobility device and simply want an occasional assist for long walks. The contoured seat lets you ride in comfort and safety and it includes a handy basket for shopping.
The new collapsible handlebar makes it a cinch to store or transport. Just drop the handlebars and store it in the back of the RV, van or trunk. The all-new design increases ease of operation by locating the controls and battery feedback with the brakes on the handlebar along with the keyed ignition. The headlight incorporates a powerful, new 7 LED design. Now you can see be seen.
ZAPPY3 came on the scene in 2005 as ZAP started delving into electric wheel motor technology. If you haven’t noticed, there is an electric motor built into the front wheel of the ZAPPY3. Wheel motor technology is perhaps the best innovation for electric vehicles in recent years because they are inexpensive, efficient and powerful. Wheel motors apply torque directly to the wheels, helping to save space in other parts of the vehicle for more batteries or features, as well as eliminating the cost, weight and inefficiency of a transmission. This simple innovation has extended the range over the ZAP scooters of years ago; the latest ZAPPY3 can run up to 17 miles on a single charge, compared to 10 miles for ZAP’s original scooters.
