CT&T United (Korean씨티엔티) is a manufacturer of battery electric vehicles including the eZone Medium Speed Vehicle and cZone low-speed vehicle based in South Korea. The CT&T eZone is the only electric vehicle of its type to pass the international crash test for passenger vehicles.[1]

American assembly[edit]

CT&T United plans a "Regional Assembly and Sales" system, in which regional joint ventures in the United States would assemble cars in small factories.[2] On September 28, 2009 Governor of Pennsylvania Ed Rendell announced the first two such sites would be in Pennsylvania.[3] On May 7, 2010, the company and Governor of Hawaii Linda Lingle announced they would build a plant on the island of Oahu to manufacture up to 10,000 vehicles a year.[4]

None of the great plans listed above ever finalized. While the CT&T AMERICA, INC. has been registered with NHTSA as a Low Speed Vehicle Manufacturer, they only sold few vehicles in 2009 and the company went out of business in 2015. CT&T never received the required EO (Executive Order) from CARB (California Air Resources Board) so the cars were not legal for sale in California.

Distributing in Japan[edit]

e-Zone is imported by Autorex, distributed by NAFCA (Nippon Automobile Fair Certificate Association). In Japan, eZone is classified under Kei car.
