Why is GEM Trusted By the Federal Government?

  • GEMs are zero-CO2 emission vehicles, supporting the Federal Sustainability Plan to significantly cut greenhouse gas emissions by 2030and helping meet environmental goals without compromising productivity. Sandia National Laboratories has been recognized by the White House for their fleet of 200 GEMs, having received a GreenGov Presidential Award – earning the “Green Innovation Award” for developing and implementing solar-powered GEMs.
  • GEMs meet and exceed LSV federal safety standards, promoting a safe work environment at your base or facility. Safety features include three-point seatbelts, automotive glass windshields, turn signals, brake lights, an Occupant Protection System (OPS), street tires, backup cameras, optional doors and more.
  • Compared to vans and trucks, GEMs have a low total cost of ownership due to no fuel costs and reduced maintenance costs. Compared to combustion engine alternatives, a GEM can save you nearly $4,000 to operate and maintain per year.
  • Street-legal under federal and state law, GEMs can be driven on most roads posted 35 mph or slower. And with a top speed limit of 25 mph on most US military installations, GEM LSVs are made for base travel.
  • With payload up to 1,415 lbs, 1,250 lbs of towing and 10 work packages, GEMs are highly qualified for the unique demands of the federal government.
  • GEMs are comfortable to ride with performance seats, 43” of available legroom and spacious cabs with enough room to seat a 6’ 8” passenger.
  • GEMs don’t require charging infrastructure investment, one of the biggest barriers to EV adoption. GEMs charge via standard 110V outlets, fast chargers or renewable power solar panels.

With tens of thousands of GEM low-speed vehicles and Taylor-Dunn industrial vehicles (another Waev Inc. brand) in the federal space today, our proven fleet is designed to help you accomplish your mission so you can stay focused on what matters mostprotecting and promoting American security and prosperity.

Sandia National Laboratories Customer Story

Looking to move away from gas-powered golf carts to a more environmentally friendly option, Sandia National Laboratories  began the transition to EVs in 2002 with the purchase of GEM low-speed vehicles (LSVs), allowing the premier national science and engineering lab to supplement its motor vehicle fleet while reducing carbon emissions and operational costs.

“As one of the nation’s largest national laboratories, Sandia is serious about reducing our environmental impact as much as possible,” said Nick Lovato with Fleet Services at Sandia National Laboratories. “Our fleet has more than 200 street-legal GEM vehicles including our originally purchased GEMs, more recent GEM e4s and solar-powered GEM e4s.”

Sandia has been able to meet federal oversight guidelines as well as significantly reduce overall fleet operating costs through maximized vehicle efficiency and reduced maintenance costs. They’ve also been recognized by the White House for these efforts, having received a GreenGov Presidential Award – earning the “Green Innovation Award” for developing and implementing the photovoltaic (PV) powered carts.
