ZAP Obvio 828

ZAP Obvio 828

Fuel
The Trybrid cars runs with ZAP Eco-Flex fuel: ethanol E-100, gasoline and/or natural compressed gas in any proportion in the same tank. Check out the Obvio  ! 828E 100% Electric version.

The Obvio  ! 828 achieves a fuel economy of 12.5 km/liter (29.40 mpg) in urban driving and 17.3 km/liter (40.69 mpg) during highway driving when equipped with ZAP Eco-Flexible Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) - 1.6 Liter/115Hp High Fuel Efficiency

Also available with Obvio  !'s "HIGHPOWERSERIES" 170 and 250 HP engines. (All mileage ratings are estimated with 100 percent ethanol as the assumed fuel source, gasoline should yield about a 10% increase in mileage).

What is the advantage of Ethanol E100?
It's a combination of high-performance and high mileage for any situation. E100 means that the car runs at any percentage mixture of ethanol, gas, natural compressed gas or even pure ethanol (which is less expensive), or pure gas, if the owner so chooses. It's up to you, the owner, how to combine the fuels. To sum it up, it is a very flexible fuel vehicle!
