Zetta is the first Russian electric car to be serial produced at the company’s factory in Tolyatti. The manufacturer targets the Russian and foreign markets. There are several kits for the electric car, which differ in battery capacity and type of drive (two or four wheels). The starting price is 450,000 rubles (about 6,230 euros).
The chassis is made of metal construction with panels of extrusion composite material. The drive system consists of induction motor-wheels. With a single charge, the Zetta will be able to travel between 300 and 560 kilometers depending on the kit and therefore the battery capacity.
The maximum annual production will be 15,000 cars, and by the end of the year it is planned to release 10 pieces from the strip. The plant is currently preparing production, which is set to begin in December 2019.
