Verdek To Distribute Italian EV In America
Verdek-EV was formed a year ago, with ex-Pirelli USA president and CEO Guy Mannino as its president and CEO. In celebration of the company’s first anniversary, VERDEK-EV has signed an agreement to be the exclusive distributor for the Italian- manufactured Tazzari ZERO, a neighbourhood electric vehicle (NEV) with lithium-ion batteries that provide a range of 88 miles before recharging at a cost of less than $2.
Verdek-EV’s distribution rights include North America, Mexico and the Caribbean islands. Along with battery electric vehicles (BEVs), plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) and other alternate-fuelled vehicles, NEVs are a growing and critical niche within the future of worldwide transportation, says the company. With 40 per cent of the world driving less than 40 miles per day, NEVs are optimally suited to satisfy much of the local transportation demands.
