Street Legal Golf Carts from Moto Electric Vehicles
Moto Electric Vehicles maintains a large inventory of street legal golf carts that can be configured, accessorized, or equipped to meet your personal or business needs. Our electric vehicles leave a much smaller environmental footprint than traditional vehicles that burn fossil fuels. When used for running daily errands, street legal golf carts offer significant savings for communities, such as eliminating the need for larger parking areas while reducing some of the frustration caused by traffic congestion. MotoEV offers a variety of configurations for use in neighborhoods, resorts, amusement parks, manufacturing facilities, hospitals, military bases, real estate developments, zoos, churches, school campuses and even golf courses.
Since the same rules that regulate the use of low-speed vehicles (LSV's) and neighborhood electric vehicles (NEV's) also apply to operating a street legal golf cart on public highways and community streets, our road-ready golf carts are faster than conventional models used on the golf course. With passengers, you can easily cruise at 25 MPH on local roadways with a posted speed limit of 35 MPH or less. However, some states do recognize differences between golf carts, street legal golf carts, and an LSV. State, county, or municipal ordinances may restrict a traditional golf cart to use only on the golf course, where other regions might allow operation during daylight hours only for driving around in a low-speed neighborhood or golf cart community.
Recently, Moto Electric Vehicles has expanded our manufacturing facilities for equipping street legal golf carts with the accessories you need to get any job done. Our electric carts and utility vehicles can improve the overall safety for staff and passengers as well as provide an excellent source for moving signage. At MotoEV, we feature many models with a variety of seating configurations and optional equipment, such as emergency vehicle lighting kits, cargo bodies, opened or closed beds, and just about any other application you can imagine. We also offer custom body wraps to turn your street legal golf carts into branded rolling billboards based on your logos and designs.

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 500

The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 500 (49 CFR 571.500) permitted the manufacture and sale of small four-wheel vehicles with a top speed of up to 25 miles per hour and total gross weight of 3000 lbs. and equipped with the following safety requirements for street legal golf carts per S5(b):
- (1) Headlamps;
- (2) Front and rear turn signal lamps;
- (3) Taillamps;
- (4) Stop lamps;
- (5) Reflex reflectors: one red on each side as far to the rear as practicable, and one red on the rear;
- (6) An exterior mirror mounted on the driver's side of the vehicle and either an exterior mirror mounted on the passenger's side of the vehicle or an interior mirror;
- (7) A parking brake;
- (8) A windshield that conforms to the Federal motor vehicle safety standard on glazing materials (49 CFR 571.205);
- (9) A VIN that conforms to the requirements of part 565 VIN#;
- (10) A Type 1 or Type 2 seat belt assembly conforming to Sec. 571.209 of this part, Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 209, Seat belt assemblies, installed at each designated seating position;

Over the past two decades more and more people have discovered street legal electric golf carts as an ideal transportation solution that provides ease of use and has a better operating efficiency for short trips. There’s no doubt that slipping behind the wheel of a nimble mode of transportation is more appealing than driving the family car. At MotoEV, we help ensure that your vehicles satisfy all federal, state, and local requirements for road use.
Lifted Street Legal Golf Carts
As a day-to-day mode of personal transportation, lifted street legal golf carts are quieter, don’t pollute, and provide accessibility for residents who are not as comfortable driving a larger vehicle. When people found uses for the conventional golf cart that took it off course, heavy duty leaf springs and bigger tires were obvious accessories that would make it easier to tackle rougher terrain without fear of bottoming out whether driving on or off the road. So, a lifted street legal golf cart has a more accommodating higher-center of gravity. This makes today’s electric utility vehicles more practical for hauling extra weight and gives your ride gnarly appearance that simply looks more appealing. At MotoEV, we ensure your vehicle is configured correctly to get the job done.
There’s no doubt that purchasing the right lifted street-legal golf cart is a smart choice for transporting people or hauling a larger load. Not only will you get a smoother ride, but you also won’t have to embarrassingly ask a heavier passenger to ride up front. Plus, there is less to worry about with plenty of ground clearance and suspension to handle ground-level stumps, pot holes, and other challenging obstacles. So, whether you are shopping for the family or need fully-equipped lifted street legal carts, MotoEV has a proven solution to meet your specific needs. For starters, all vehicles feature a chassis with high-yield strength, welded steel tubing, and protective powder-coat paint. As a full service manufacturer, we carry the dealer-approved replacement parts to keep you moving.
