Used ZeCar Cars -
Stevens Vehicles Ltd are a new British
manufacturer of zero emission electric vehicles for personal and
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
Lastly, above their obvious
environmental credentials, our vehicles provide good PR and promotional
opportunities for commercial customers.

- Safer for people
– Electric vehicles emit no toxins or pollutants or exhaust fumes
into the air, reducing risks of pollution-induced illnesses and
cancers for you and for others around you.
- Safe Voltages –
All our vehicles use safe levels of electric voltage - 48v or 72v -
considerably less than the 240v power supply found at home.
Standards – Our vehicles are built to meet the UK Road Vehicle
Construction & Use Regulations - the same standards as every school
bus, coach and truck in the UK. They also built to the highest
electric vehicle safety levels, complying with the United Nations
EV100 international electric vehicle guidelines.
- Our vehicles
have also been developed using the crash testing simulation
facilities and expertise of the world class British Transport
From £10 a
day to buy, under 2p a mile to charge, and 15p a mile to run.
