The leading electronic vehicle produce in Korea, CT&T, is pushing for their range of c-Zone electric powered golf cars and functional EVs for worldwide use.
The e-Zone is a slow speed car that has enough space for 2 persons and is made of a fiber glass body supported by a tough aluminum frame. The engineering is specifically aimed at improving the safety of the vehicle in the event of crashes. The manufacturer makes an airbag optional.
The e-Zone passed the safety standards of Europe and of the US FMVSS301 when it was tested in a 30 mph crash simulation.
The vehicle sports a McPherson suspension system utilizing a 4-wheel independent configuration. Controlling the vehicle comes easy with the hydraulic disc brakes and regenerative braking using electromagnetic technology.
The e-Zone runs using an AC motor powered by a 72 volt battery. Owners will have two options for the battery packs: a lead-acid set will last for 35 miles while lithium polymer types can stretch from 45 to 75 miles.
The car being considered as a low speed vehicle has a limited top speed of 25 mph. The e-zone is just 103 inches long with a turning radius of 12 feet.
A batch of e-Zone cars were shipped to the Fiji Island where they will be used as earth friendly vehicles to help locals and tourists go around their favorite sites. CT&T is also set to put up a production line in Fiji with a projected output of 10000 vehicles per year. They are also looking at supplying nearby Australia and New Zealand.
