We choose a U(1)0 model with a secluded sector, where the tension between the electroweak scale and developing a large enough mass for Z0 is resolved by incorporating three additional SU(2) singlet fields into the model. We perform a detailed and systematic analysis of the production, followed by decays, including into supersymmetric particles, of a Z0 boson with mass larger than 4 TeV, with particular emphasis on its possible discovery. We choose three different scenarios consistent with the latest available experimental data and relic density constraints. We concentrate on final signals involving 2l + #6 T, 4l + #6 T and 6l + #6 T. Including possible SM backgrounds, we show the likelihood of observing a Z0 boson is not promising for the HL-LHC at 14 TeV, but optimistic for 27 and 100 TeV.
