Low speed electric vehicles (LSVs) are an exciting, rapidly-expanding market. Neighbourhood electric vehicles (NEVs), golf carts and utility terrain vehicles all fall into this category. More and more people are opting for electric versions of these low speed vehicles over their internal-combustion counterparts which are polluting, noisy and expensive to fuel and maintain.
The growing popularity of this market is apparent in the USA, where most states permit LSVs on regular roads. In North America, we can find communities where NEVs are the main source of transportation. The sport and hunting markets have also embraced the idea of electric utility terrain vehicles. Many hunters and farmers are turning to electric recreation vehicles because of their instant torque and smooth handling capabilities.
