Charging that fits your lifestyle
Charging a Zero is simple. Charging requires no additional equipment or installations. Bring your Zero home, plug it into your nearest outlet. Done.
Looking for fast charging options? Charge 6x faster using the Charge Tank option at Level 2 stations. Or, plug a Quick Charger accessory into a second outlet to cut home charge times by over 60% without installing a charge station.
Start every day with a full “Tank”
Ditch the gas station. Plug in at night and wake up every morning with a full “tank.” Per hour of charging, a Zero takes you farther than just about any EV in the world. The result, most owners use a standard outlet to “fuel” their daily rides.
Charge 6x Faster
Add 50 km of range while grabbing coffee. For fast charging on the go, Zero offers a 6kW Charge Tank for 2015 and newer Zero S and Zero DS models. It increases charging speeds by about six times as compared to using a standard outlet, allowing recharges in as little as an hour depending on battery size (0-95%).
The Charge Tank uses the popular J1772 EV standard. It is compatible with the rapidly expanding network of Level 2 (220 V) public and home charging stations. In one hour the Charge Tank delivers up to 137 km of city range. Max out your charge speed. Plug in the standard charger in parallel to hit 166 km for each hour of charging.
Scalable Quick Chargers
For home or office use, Zero’s scalable “Quick Charger” system can more than double charging speeds (dramatically reducing charging times). The system uses stand-alone (off-board) 1kW chargers that work in conjunction with the motorcycle’s standard (on-board) charger.
Note: each charger typically needs to be plugged into a separate circuit.
