Zoe Motors

Introduced in 1983  by Zoe Motors Inc in Los Angeles, California (USA) the Zoe Zipper was a light weight one seater vehicle weighing in at under 400 pounds. It was initially manufactured by Mitsuoka Motors in Japan in 1982.

The vehicle was powered by a 5hp (49cc) Honda engine that provided power to the single rear wheel.  The Zoe Zipper had a top speed of 45 mph (72 kmh) and offered fuel consumption of anything up to 112 mpg.

The body was made of fibreglass and came in two versions, a hardtop and a convertible.

Also in 1983 the Zoe Little Giant was also introduced.  Again powered by a 49 cc Honda engine the Little Giant was a mini pick-up truck that could carry a payload of half a ton.

It is believed that production figures for both vehicles was low
