A revolutionary design for a passenger vehicle, the C-ZEN can be legally driven in many European countries and is targeted at urban commuters, particularly the younger generation of drivers. The all-electric vehicle has been designed from the ground up to utilize Valence’s patented lithium phosphate batteries. The C-ZEN has a range of up to 205 kilometers (125 miles) with a top speed of 110 km/hour (68 mph) and is powered by a 15kW electric motor.

“Valence has been supporting and developing the on-board electrical power system for this innovative vehicle over the past two years. We believe Courb’s leadership and technical team possess the true innovative spirit necessary to make their electric vehicle a winner in this developing field. We are very pleased to be a key partner with Courb and look forward to powering their vehicles for many years to come,” stated Valence president and chief executive officer Robert L. Kanode.

Hervé Arnaud, CEO of Courb, said, “Valence has been an indispensable technical partner these past two years and their energy efficient, pollution-free batteries are a critical component in the C-ZEN. In addition, Valence’s service and technical expertise have been world-class."
