The i300 will be fitted as standard with two portable battery packs, each of which weighs 6kg. While Zapp EV hasn’t given their capacity it claims that combined the packs give the bike a range of 37 miles. The batteries can be charged from 20-80% in under 40 minutes on a standard domestic power supply.

The machine will be offered with a wide range of personalisation options, including six colours for the front fender and three seat colours. 

The i300 is now available to reserve, and will be priced from £5750 (following the government grant of £500) for the entry-level Ocean model, which uses ocean recycled plastic. The i300 Bio and Carbon, which feature natural and carbon composite bodywork, are both priced at £6995.

A limited-edition i300 Carbon Launch Edition, which features carbon composite bodywork, a special plaque, Union flag decals and diamond cut wheels, is priced at £7995.

The i300 will only be sold directly through the Zapp EV website, with machines delivered to customers in ‘Zappers’ (a plug-in hybrid van, to you and me). The firm will also offer servicing support, leasing and insurance packages. 

The Zapp i300 bike will be assembled in Thailand, although the firm says components will be manufactured and sourced globally, including in Britain.
