Used ZeCar Cars - Classifieds

Stevens Vehicles Ltd are a new British manufacturer of zero emission electric vehicles for personal and commercial use.

Zecar® and Zevan® are two new electric vehicles manufactured in Wales by Stevens Vehicles Ltd.  Both vehicles share the same platform.  The vehicles are designed with the brief to create a low environmental impact vehicle range - from well to wheel - that will be economically viable for global village transport.   Focused on low cost for developing nations, this cost discipline has made it economically and commercially viable to manufacture in the UK for niche markets, like the current electric vehicle market in London.   

The design incorporates few components and minimal few mod cons, leveraging existing valid designs and technologies as far as possible, enabling it to address environmental costs from design through production, use and to its end-of-life. 

The vehicles are designed to maximise internal space relative to external footprint dimensions.  This means that although the vehicle is shorter and narrower than most compact vehicle, it is taller, giving the equivalent space of a much larger vehicle.  We believe this will make the vehicle attractive for many market segments, particularly in urban environments, where ease of parking is important. 

Economically, the switch to electric vehicles simply cuts costs, from whichever way.  Running costs are less than 2p a mile. Batteries and motors are maintenance free, making servicing easy. 

Lastly, above their obvious environmental credentials, our vehicles provide good PR and promotional opportunities for commercial customers.
