What is a Low-Speed Vehicle?

A Low-Speed Vehicle (LSV) is a street-legal, four-wheeled electric vehicle with a top speed of 25 mph and a gross vehicle weight rating of less than 3,000 lb. Most states allow LSVs to drive on roads marked 35 mph or less.

Low-speed vehicles are typically electric, with a range of about 30 miles.

What are the requirements for low-speed vehicles?

Low-speed vehicles must adhere to the performance and safety standards set by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic and Safety Association) which states that low-speed vehicles must be equipped with headlamps, front and rear turn signal lights, tail lights, stop lights, reflex reflectors, mirrors, parking brake, windshield, seat-belt assembly, and an alert sound (horn).

Where can low-speed vehicles be driven?

Low-speed vehicles are restricted from roadways where the speed limit is greater than 35 mph (50 km/h). Please check your local regulations for more details.
