GBS has started the process of getting the Zero homologated for the European market. The first part of this process took place last week with a car going down to the MIRA testing centre, which is a world renowned test facility accredited by the VCA.
The first test that the Zero undertook was Vehicle Exhaust Emissions over a drive cycle the same as any new car would do, the car performed much better than expected with a lot lower g/km of CO2. Also the fuel consumption figures for the urban, extra urban and the combined were very impressive considering the cars 178bhp, the static and drive by noise tests were also completed.
The GBS Zero range which is available in right and left hand drive has been sold in France, Germany, Sweden, Portugal, Greece, Siberia, South Africa, Australia, America, New Zealand and Ireland.
