Zero Motorcycles launched operations in 2007 – a time when electric motorcycles were in their infancy. Fast forward to 2018, and Zero has multiple riding genres covered, from urban to dirt to supermoto.

Now Zero wants to enter world of four-wheeled maxi-scooters. To simplify the transition, Zero Motorcycles announced Wednesday that it has partnered with the Swiss-based Qaudro Vehicles.

Quadro’s  four-wheeled tilting scooter, the Qooder, features a built-in hydraulic tilt system (HTS) design that allows it to bank upwards of 45 degrees into corners without losing all four wheels of traction.
