LRC-T6 The standard LRC T15 has a 10 kwh battery pack using 28 cells of 100 ah each. For those riders that do not need the long range of the T15, the T6 model using 28 cells of the smaller 60 ah battery cells is available at a lower cost. While less battery capacity reduces the vehicle price and range, it does not reduce the speed or acceleration.
The ZEV LRC-T 15 Trike offers:
- Range of 125 miles at 55 mph
- Range of 70 miles at 70 mph

To make the bike even more stable at speed, the two front wheels have a bit of camber such that the two wheels lean inward at the top toward each other slightly. The front suspension design is that of 4 short equal length suspension arms as might be found on a car for a more supple ride than that of tilting trikes that use long, heavy cross bars suspension components spanning the entire bike width.
ZEV does not use any electrics, hydraulics, or pumps in the front suspension. The system is designed to be a pure mechanical system to eliminate complexity, cost, and to increase reliability and to make the bike feel like a standard motorcycle in the turns.
The design offers a width of trike still able to fit through a normal 32-36 inch man door with the mirrors in place and legal for lane splitting between cars.
