Commonly Asked Questions
WHAT IS A NEV?

An N.E.V. (Neighborhood Electric Vehicle) is a low-speed electric vehicle that usually looks like a slightly oversized golf cart and is limited to a top speed of 25 mph. As such NEVs are required to stay on roads with a posted speed limit of 35 mph or less.

     NEVs are great alternative travel solutions for people on the move. They are perfect for driving in and around city centers, master planned communities, resorts, industrial and college campuses and military bases. They are also a great first car for young new drivers (slower speeds and limited routes make these vehicles a favorite among nervous parents with new drivers in the family). No tailpipe emissions make an NEV a great indoor/outdoor vehicle for warehousing and maintenance department use. With a cost of just pennies per mile (actually less than 45 cents per full charge), by using an NEV for local driving a nd errands (which are typically inefficient from a gasoline fuel consumption perspective), you can considerably cut down on fuel costs.

    Charging up an NEV is easy. Chargers plug into any 110-volt outlet. A full charge takes just six to eight hours, but vehicles can be "topped off" by plugging the vehicle in to an outlet any time it's not in use. The only ongoing maintena nce required is a monthly check of the batteries to maintain the required levels of distilled water.
