ROME, GA -- VERDEK-EV proudly announced yesterday that it has formally entered into a partnership with VENTA to be the exclusive distributor in the United States for the Italian designed and manufactured Tazzari ZERO, a unique neighborhood electric vehicle (NEV) powered by state-of-the-art, lithium-ion batteries that provide a range of 88 miles on a single charge.

Developed from the same pedigree as the Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati, the Tazzari Zero promises to be a vehicle without comparison, from the moment you enter the highly styled cockpit of the Zero the driver is experiences the latest technology, uncompromising Italian fit and finish, and enhanced ergonomic design. Since its introduction at the 2009 Bologna Auto Show, the demand for the Tazzari Zero has been impressive.

The sporty, aluminum-bodied Tazzari Zero delivers zero emissions, has a top speed of 25 mph. or higher depending on State regulations. It features removable sunroof, heating and air conditioning, stereo radio with MP3 and CD player, 15” custom colored wheels, 4 performance disc brakes, fog lamps, leather steering wheel and seats, parking sensors and even cup holders.

Using state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries fairly unique to NEVs, the batteries have an estimated life of 50,000 miles and can be recharged in 9 hours (110 volts), 6.5 hours (220 volts) or 50 minutes (at 80% of the full charge) with optional Super-fast battery charger. NEVs are optimally suited to satisfy much of the local transportation demands.

Verdek-EV is the exclusive importer for the Tazzari Zero in North America, Mexico and the Caribbean islands. “We are particularly excited about our alliance with Venta to promote Tazzari Zero in the US, the most important market in the world,” stated Guy Mannino, CEO of Verdek. “Zero is the perfect transportation solution for North America’s congested metropolitan centers and we’re confident that Venta will be an excellent marketing partner.”

By signing the agreement with Verdek-EV to distribute the Tazzari Zero, Venta remains committed to maintaining its leadership position in finding and developing distribution in the US for some of the world's most environmentally-friendly vehicles.

Dmitri Tisnoi, CEO of Venta, stated Clearly, the desire for the American consumer to think and drive in an ecologically friendly manner is stronger then ever, the combination of a highly stylish Italian Roadster powered by a Zero emission system is a combination hard to ignore. The time for the electric car has come and we are poised to provide the vehicle set to change the way people think of the electric car. I am proud to be at the helm of this revolutionary vehicle.”
