What is a Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV)?
What is the Difference Between an NEV and LSV?
NEV is a federally approved street-legal classification, that falls under the United States Department classification for low-speed vehicles. While NEV is used in some states, most states use the terminology LSV to recognize street-legal carts.
Where Can an NEV Be Driven?
Neighborhood vehicles are perfect for quick drives around the community, family trips to the beach, and nights on the town. NEVs can be legally driven on most public roads where the posted speed limit is 35 mph (50 kmh) or less.
Do NEVs Have to Be Registered?
A NEV (LSV) must be titled, registered, and insured according to local laws and may only be operated by a licensed driver.
