A new concept, design without limits giving
shape to such an innovative idea. Right
from the very first sketches, ZERO was
conceived as totally electric and different
from anything that has gone before.
6

That is its strength.


100% electric.
100% eco-friendly.
100% sporty.

Lithium, Li symbol, atomic number 3, specific weight


0.534 g/cm3. The lightest metal in the world, it has
extraordinary electrochemical potential.

THE POWER OF LITHIUM.

A concentration of energy.
The lithium ion batteries are essential for previously unseen levels of
performance. The energy storage capacity, together with the light weight
of the latest generation lithium batteries ensure great roaming range and
unprecedented performance for an electric vehicle.

ZERO is charged up and its power will amaze you.

PASSION AND INNOVATION.


A revolutionary concept,
ZERO incorporates avant-garde technology
to create a vehicle that combines ecological responsibility
with a passion for driving.

With its design that comes straight from the


field of motor sports, ZERO represents the best of Italy:
a dynamic look with careful attention paid to details,
exceptional performance and a real sports car's style of driving.

THE STRENGTH OF ALUMINIUM.


Specific expertise.
Atomic number 13. Specific weight 2.71 g/cm3. Aluminium is the third
most present element on the planet after oxygen and silicon.
It's entirely recyclable with a low use of energy, it's completely non-toxic
and its characteristics are heightened in alloys.
Aluminium is three times lighter than steel and it has exceptional mechanical characteristics that make it very resistant.
The ZERO chassis - a combination of structural castings and aluminium
profiles - is made in the foundries of the Tazzari Group, experts in the
field for over 45 years.
This kind of chassis, typical of the world's best sports cars, is an absolute
first for an electric vehicle.
This cutting-edge technology leads to extraordinary stability and active
safety.
The resistant and dynamic bearing structure makes ZERO unique and in
a league of its own.

Breathe.
Its natural habitat is the city.
Fast trips, flashes of colour in the grey of
everyday life.
Go anywhere, restriction-free.
ZERO turns heads with its energy and
10

leaves a trail of pure fresh air.

ZERO EMISSIONS.
The difference of ZERO is in the air.
This compact Italian sports car regenerates your city, leaving it
cleaner and greener.

At last an entirely electric vehicle that really is emission-free.

11

LIGHT UP THE TOWN.


Unplug, open the garage doors and light up the city.
It's agile in traffic, has unrestricted
access and can be parked in less than 3 metres.

ZERO is the ideal solution for everyday driving.

INDIVIDUAL MOBILITY.
Like a butterfly.
With ZERO you're as light, silent and free as a butterfly as you drive
around town, while others move in herds, leaving trails of grey
pollution in their wake.

Whether you're travelling from home to work, for a trip out of town or
around the shops or going out for a drink, ZERO is your travelling
companion.

Your choice marks you out as committed to the environment.

THE ITALIAN DREAM.

Created with the planet in mind after three years of research and development, ZERO has been made with real passion.

15

It is the ultimate expression of Italian creativity - a dream that has


become reality. An Italian thoroughbred with ecology at heart.

Excite.
The light touch of the aluminium pedals.
A leather steering wheel to caress.
Rounding bends with a masterstroke, a
choice of attitude.
A shiver of energy and a new light - ZERO
16

imitates no one.
The world's first electric urban sports
vehicle is already a legend.

RUN AROUND TOWN.

Would you like to experience new sensations? Central engine, rearwheel drive, ultra-low centre of gravity, wide wheelbase, four disc
brakes and a technological cast aluminium chassis.

Thanks to its technical characteristics ZERO stands out in the urban jungle and it's quick off the mark with 150 Nm torque for a total weight of
less than 550kg.

With performance and control, fun is guaranteed.


17

FOUR DRIVING MODES.


ZERO x 4 = ZERO
ZERO hasn't been designed just for sunny days or Sunday driving.
ZERO is a real alternative for everyday city traffic.
There are four cars within every ZERO.
The different driving modes can be selected at any time, depending on
changing road or weather conditions or on your driving style.
Centrally positioned on the dashboard are four coloured buttons that
correspond to ZERO's four characters.
In each driving mode each aspect is altered - performance, acceleration, drive, energy recovery when slowing down and brake power.
18

RACE
Maximum power, this mode brings out ZERO's
sports car soul.
ECONOMY
Makes optimum use of the charge giving extraordinary roaming range, up to 140 km.
STANDARD
The ideal balance between performance and
range -perfect for everyday use.
RAIN
The right choice for travelling safely when road
conditions concede little grip.

A THOUSAND SENSATIONS.
ZERO was designed to transform your daily stints behind the wheel
into a series of different driving sensations, all dynamic and safe.

Created to give you a new experience at the helm of an electric vehicle,


ZERO is the result of three years of research and development which
have united functional needs and a desire for fun.

As a concept, it 's ideal for today's city dwellers, offering a quality car
that's eco-friendly and sporty at the same time.

19

TECHNOLOGY IN MOTION.
A quest for the best solutions to offer the latest technology at a competitive price.
That's the idea behind ZERO. An electric vehicle without rivals, developed without the
transformation technicalities that limit endothermic vehicles. ZERO goes further and accepts no compromises. The Tazzari Group has specially designed an aluminium chassis
that's light, resistant, efficient and dynamic. The electric drive benefits from the fantastic
performance of lithium ion batteries that are controlled by a specific BMS and active equaliser. These aspects have been created to give ZERO long-term reliability and make it practical to use. The three-phase asynchronous electric engine with aluminium body is at wheel
fulcrum height, just behind the central safety cell. To create a balance, the batteries are
spaced out below the seats and towards the front of the vehicle. These aspects contribute
20

to making the centre of gravity ultra-low and as a consequence the weight is distributed
evenly between the two axles. This gives incredible roadholding and stability in any kind
of conditions. The position of the power unit, slightly off-centre compared to the longitudinal vehicle axis, adds balance when driving without a passenger.
In the right-hand drive vehicle, the engine is placed on the left to create perfect balance
in this configuration too.

INTELLIGENT SAFETY.
Leaving nothing to chance when it comes to safety,
ZERO is provided with an electro-assisted brake system with four disc
brakes, a feature usually reserved for racing cars.
ZERO's sophisticated bearing structure is made up of three frames, the
central one guaranteeing safety in the case of impact in the passenger
and driver area, while the front and rear frames have been designed with
structures, parts and materials specifically created and tested to absorb
external impact, with controlled deformation to protect the central
safety cell.

LUXURY IS A STANDARD FEATURE.

As well as the latest generation lithium batteries, ZERO's other standard features are first class. LEDs
are used for the tail lights, the third brake light and the wing mirrors with integrated indicator lights as
well as the interior lighting and luggage compartment lighting. Power windows, rear fog lights, electric
wing mirrors, a remote controlled central locking system and an immobiliser are all standard features
too. There's a radio with MP3, USB input, iPod and 12V socket for a mobile or iPhone to make your journey more pleasurable. A LED econometer is incorporated into the dashboard of all vehicles to help you
monitor consumption at all times. This, together with a charge monitor, enables you to manage the re-

23

sidual range of your ZERO to the best. In keeping with the dynamic character of ZERO, there are a threespoke leather sports steering wheel, 15 cast aluminium wheels and two comfortable eco-leather seats.
The dashboard, door-linings and interior upholstery are made in special soft touch material. The designer pedals and internal handles are made in aluminium castings. As a standard feature, ZERO comes
with four brake discs with regenerative braking. Included in the purchase price are also the lithium battery pack, a standard on-board compact battery charger, an electric heating system and two luggage
compartments with an overall capacity of 180 litres.

OBJECTS OF DESIRE.
ZERO isn't massed produced. Created in Imola, each vehicle can be customised in numerous ways to make it your own.
By selecting from the 12 bodywork colour options and the 3 wheel rim colour options there are 36 possible bi-colour combinations and you can even order your own customised colour, indicating the RAL colour code of your choice.
Ultra-light sports bucket seats, sunroof, parking sensors, an extra-powerful heating system, an anti-theft device with siren,
white LED tail lights and third brake light these and other accessories have been created to allow for multi-level personalisation. Each ZERO can thus become unique.

EASY TO RECHARGE.
If you own a mobile phone you already know how to charge your ZERO.
All you need is an electrical socket. The cable is taken from the front luggage compartment and plugged into the socket.
Using the standard 220V on-board battery charger (standard issue on all vehicles) and
with a power supply of 1.8 kW, it only takes about 10 hours to charge the batteries completely from 0% to 100%.
With the optional 220V MULTIFAST battery charger, you can fill up from 0% to 100%
in around 5 hours at maximum absorption speed. This charger, which is also inside the
vehicle, has three speeds and can be adjusted at any time depending on the power supply or time available for charging.
With the 380V SUPERFAST external charger and a three-phase power supply the battery can be recharged from 0% to 80% in under an hour. An ideal solution for ZEROs
that are part of a fleet of company cars.
