Neighborhood Electric Vehicles (NEVs)

The newest acronym is NEV, which stands for Neighborhood Electric Vehicles. Here are the latest facts:

  • 65% of U.S. families own a second car, yet over 50% of urban trips last less than ten minutes, perfect for NEVs. 80% of all trips are within 10 miles or less in a traditional automobile resulting in cold running motors that translate into excessive engine wear and even more pollutants. You Make Money! Up to $4,000 federal tax credit is available for 7.5% of the purchase price on an NEV.
  • No pollutants. These vehicles are ZERO emission, not low, ZERO. There is absolutely no gas or diesel powered vehicle that can boast that.
  • 76% of neighborhood electric vehicle users own two or more internal combustion engine vehicles but the NEV replaces 65% of daily short-distance trips formerly taken with those vehicles.
  • 75% of all trips taken by NEV users are three miles or less.
  • 64.7% of all NEV trips replaced trips that would have been taken with a personal or company-provided internal combustion vehicles.
