Electric Motorcycle Review — 2017 Zero DS 13.0

Zero entrusted us with a 2017 DS 13.0 for a month. Robert and I took it through the paces both around Los Angeles and off road. We argued over which was the ultimate urban warrior — the Zero DS or the Zero FXS. I’ve been riding my FX(S)* every day since 2013, and consider it the best streetfighter ever made. Well, the newer FX’s are even better, but I own mine, so that’s an advantage worth keeping when money is tight. Both models are great for daily commuting in a city with some of the worst pavement in America, or if your commute includes dirt roads

China Changing The Auto World, Germany Lagging

A report by the Center for Automotive Research at the University of Duisberg-Essen in Germany predicts the market for new cars in China will exceed 30 million vehicles a year by 2025 and it expects EV sales to make up 30% of that figure. In 2016, EV sales in China amounted to 2.1% of sales. While that number is minuscule in the overall scheme of things, it is still double that of other countries. In China, plug-in hybrids and fully electric cars are known as “new energy vehicles.” The CAR report counts both types in its EV sales calculation, according to Forbes
