Neighborhood electric vehicles (NEVs) are compact electric vehicles designed for short-distance travel in low-speed environments such as residential areas, campuses, or gated communities.
NEVs have a limited top speed typically ranging from 25 to 35 miles per hour (40 to 55 kilometers per hour), which makes them unsuitable for highway use. These vehicles are powered by electric motors and utilize rechargeable batteries as their energy source, offering zero tailpipe emissions and contributing to a cleaner environment.
NEVs are commonly used for local commuting, running errands, or transportation within restricted areas where lower speeds and shorter travel distances are the norm.
Due to their compact size and limited speed capabilities, NEVs are designed to be cost-effective, energy-efficient, and easily maneuverable, making them an ideal transportation option for short trips and specific localized settings.
