Risks and challenges
Our team, Andrew Doroshkov, Ilya Shorstov and Nastya Blyakher, wants to make this world better. We are working hard to help it become safer, cleaner and more comfortable. And we invite you to join us!!!
Our company develops compact electric vehicles with a broad functionality. Our goal is to make electric transport efficient, affordable and accessible for everyone on every day basis.
When we designed and produced a prototype of ZeitEco e-scooter, we have carefully thought about how the preparation and assembly processes could be organized in the factory environment.
We have reviewed and designed approaches to resolution of all possible production issues and bottlenecks.
Currently we are in the process of negotiation with a number of factories, discussing possible location and organization of production.
We will be ready to start the production within 3 months. We have suppliers for most parts, with delivery of 15-30 days. We have significant experience in industrial production.
Below is a list of our team achievements:
· developed and launched the production of nitrous oxide injection system.
· designed and produced a custom equipment for our production needs, including CNC.
· Over last 6 years we have amassed extensive experience working with Chinese manufacturers - production and supply of LED screens
Manufacturing is not a simple matter, but are ready for it and challenges it can present.
Depending on a speed, driving style and road conditions, one full charge of Zeit Eco standard battery can last from 16 to 25 miles. As an option, our scooter can fit a battery that can run up to 75 miles on a single charge. Both batteries can be charged with a standard home outlet, it will take about 2.5 hours to charge from empty to full, and about 30 minutes to charge to 60% for a standard battery. Zeit Eco e-scooter can also be charged in a car with a built in charger that goes in a package. In this case it will take up to 6 hours to charge the battery from empty to full and 2.5 hours to charge to 70%.
We will be able to ship the scooter outside of the US, the shipping cost will vary from country to country, on average it will cost around $100.
Because of safety regulations its maximum speed is electronically limited to 15 mph.
Extra panels of a different color are side panels with the round panels, that are covering the rear wheel.
The fork of the frame stays white.
The dimensions of the scooter are the following: 1150х850х150 mm, however, if you detach the front wheel (which is easily detachable) it will become even more compact. The body is 850 mm long.
Zeit Eco e-scooter weights 40 pounds.
We use 250-350W brushless geared hub motor and 350Wh LiFePo4 Battery. Battery has one year manufacture's warranty.
