ZENNs and Zaps can both go 35 miles on a charge.

I believe the ZENN has a regulator on it which could be removed. Technically that would not be legal....

One of the reasons that I am converting a car to electric is so I don't have to deal with all that.

I got to ride in both a ZENN and a Zap Xebra.
I wouldn't say the Xebra is "shoddy", but it is light weight and made in China.
The ZENN has quality European and Canadian construction.

If I were buying either, I would go for the ZENN.
If I were to get something that I could modify and drive wherever I wanted, the Xebra would be better. Technically, it's a motorcycle!
