Low-Speed Electric Vehicles (LSV) are increasingly being used on public roads. Although small electric vehicles have been widely used on golf courses and as mobility aids for many years, their production for public road transport as an alternative to a small number of fossil fuel vehicles has increased in recent years.
LSVs or low speed automobiles, also known as Neighborhood Electric Vehicles (NEVs), are limited to a maximum speed of 40 km/h. In recent years, manufacturers have introduced medium-speed electric vehicles (MSEVs), which are LSVs that can reach even higher speeds – typically 35 mph. Both NEV and MSEV will become increasingly popular in the coming years for local work trips and personal errands.

Both LSVs and fully electric cars and trucks have the potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gases. LSV is already used in many university and industrial campuses and in closed communities, such as the B. senior community, is used. This is the protected environment where the LSV is created.
In Europe and Asia, the number of these vehicles is increasing as an option for greater mobility and independence for the elderly and disabled. Worldwide, this vehicle travels on public roads at a certain speed of over 40 km/h.
LSV as a class of motorized vehicles is significantly different from conventional passenger cars. Federal automotive safety standards require LSVs to be equipped with headlights, taillights, brake lights, turn signals, seat belts, and other safety features but are still smaller and lighter than traditional cars.
