WHO WE ARE

ZO Motors is a manufacturer and seller of zero-emission, urban-environment, work trucks. Designed in Asia, sourced from a global supply chain, and assembled near their sales regions. ZM Trucks is the western expression of the brand.

The company has achieved price parity with comparable diesel trucks, paving the way for small-to-large-sized companies to seamlessly transition from diesel to zero-emissions without compromise.

ZM Trucks utilizes electric drive systems not just because they are green, but because the technology is superior to diesel engine platforms for intended use cases. ZM Trucks provides superior cost per mile, power, reliability, and ease-of-operation.

Mission

Moving Fleet-Dependent
Business Forward.

We are leading the transition of small- to large-sized urban transport operations from diesel-powered to zero-emission vehicle fleets, not just for the environment, but because the technology, and performance, are superior.

We are revolutionizing urban vehicle fleet operations using our globally sourced, cost-optimized supply chain and manufacturing solutions, featuring the best tech stack and ecosystem of support services available to owners and operators. 

We make it simpler, more cost effective, and less risky to keep businesses moving forward.

Vision

Transportation
Transformation.

We will transform a significant segment of the transportation sector, allowing small- to large-sized businesses to move and grow more efficiently with superior technology, while at the same time, helping the planet by eliminating diesel-burning work vehicles from our roadways.
