Neighborhood Electric Vehicles from Moto Electric Vehicles
Once used solely for carrying golfers around the course, communities today have discovered that neighborhood electric vehicles are quite universal in the purposes and benefits they provide.

As a street legal vehicle, they are equipped and registered just like your family car. Moreover, NEVs are great people movers and can be designed to carry multiple passengers while saving money on daily operating costs. More fragile historic neighborhoods, resort communities, campuses and other low speed environments prefer the use of neighborhood electric vehicles.
Neighborhood electric vehicles are more affordable and provide a nibble mode of transportation for residents, workers and guests. Both older and younger members of the family tend to prefer the simplicity of operating a quieter NEV as compared to using an oversized gasoline-powered vehicle to run daily errands.

History of Neighborhood Electric Vehicles
In United States, the turn of the twentieth century marked the heyday for neighborhood electric vehicles. With less vibration and noise, electric vehicles outsold all other modes of transportation. Passengers were turned off by the fossil fuel smell of gasoline powered cars and vehicles powered by steam were difficult to operate and fraught with complications. Start-up times for steam-powered cars could take up to an hour in cold weather and gasoline models required the driver to wrestle with shifting gears. Early on in America, the only paved roads were in town. So, the early neighborhood electric vehicles were perfect for low-speed trips around town. One of the first applications was the fleet of NEVs used as New York City taxis that replaced the horse-drawn surreys.
The development of infrastructure to connect groups of people to facilitate the exchange of goods has an impressive history that dates back to earliest trade routes used to connect Europe to the Far East, India and Africa. The popularity of the early low-speed electric vehicles in America was quickly replaced by more powerful gasoline-powered vehicles during 1920s. Public works projects were funded to connect the U.S. from coast-to-coast. These milestone achievements in infrastructure created roadways that still exist today. After the invention of an electric starter eliminated the need for hand cranking of gasoline motors, industrialist Henry Ford founded the concept of mass production and manufactured fossil fuel-powered cars for a fraction of the cost.
It would be decades before communities would understand the need for alternative-fueled vehicles. Global differences caused Americans to explore options for reducing the nation’s dependency on imported foreign crude oil used to produce gasoline. By the early 1990s, scientists began to push for legislative and regulatory actions such as the Clean Air Act Amendment to help regulate energy policies with requirements for more stringent air emissions. In additions, some states and many environmentally-sensitive communities have set goals for Zero Emissions. Today, electric vehicle technology has been applied to hybrid vehicles that are powered by fossil fuels but blend battery recovery systems to capture braking energy as well as vehicles that can be plugged into the electric grid.
Benefits and Advantages of NEVs
Neighborhood electric vehicles have become increasing popular in planned townships and private communities primarily because of the improvements in battery-powered technology, lower operating costs, and a smaller carbon footprint compared to gasoline-powered modes of transportation. The electricity that fuels an NEV comes from the power grids that are also moving away from fossil fuels to cleaner renewable sources of energy. The everyday use of these quieter vehicles has even prompted Homeowners Associations to include neighborhood electric vehicles in their covenants as a preferred mode of transportation, especially in locations with warmer Sun Belt climates. After all, NEVs do not have the noise or smell associated with gas-powered vehicles.
If you are dedicated to reducing exposure of harmful air pollutants, neighborhood electric vehicles can help. Since no fuel is required and the equivalent of electricity is less than a $1 per gallon, NEVs can also lower the costs of delivering services for resorts, town centers, campuses, and parks. Electric motors have far fewer parts to maintain or replace than do traditional fossil-fueled vehicles. Plus, MotoEV has safer manufacturing processes and there is less overall waste through recycling and repurposing of materials. Although NEVs are restricted by law to only operate on roads with a speed limit of 35 mph or less, you actually get better performance when driving neighborhood electric vehicles in a low-speed environment.
