A Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV) is a term used to identify speed limited battery power electric vehicles capable of traveling 25-35 miles per hour. The (NEV's) are restricted by law not to operate on roads with speed limits exceeding 35 mph. These speed restrictions, combined with a typical driving range of 30 miles per charge and a typical three-year battery durability, are required because of a lack of federally mandated safety equipment and features which (NEV's) can not accommodate because of their design. To satisfy requirements for operation on streets, (NEVs) are equipped with three-point seat belts, windshields and windshield wipers, running lights, headlights, break lights, reflectors, rear view mirrors, and turn signals. They must be licensed, and drivers must be licensed. Because airbags are not required, the (NEV) cannot travel on highways or freeways.
