The mail man/girl arrived today at my mail box and delivered a very precious document. The registration of the EVZ3!! It is now recognized as an electric vehicle by the Dutch (and European) goverment. This registration is proof acceptance and that the vehicle complies with the European regulations.
In the red cirkel it shows the Fuel type (Brandstof) as E (Electric)
The displayed motive power of 50kw is the 1-hour continious operation rating of the induction motor, not the actual peak power of the vehicle. I wonder if this is correct as the vehicle can develop over 90kw wheel power for short bursts.
Eitherway, Europe has one more very unique electric vehicle! The EV Z3.
