Zero participated in the Innovative Technologies in Sustainable Transportation program hosted across the bay at FedEx Oakland Airport. Zero highlighted its electric motorcycle technology amidst a wide variety of alternative fuel transportation solutions, including the Nissan Leaf, Honda Clarity, Chevy Volt, BMW Mini-E and Ford Focus EV.
