The Pennsylvania Senate passed a bill sponsored by Senator Stewart Greenleaf that would allow the operation of low speed electric vehicles on certain roadways in the Commonwealth.

A low speed electric vehicle, also referred to as Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV), is defined by the National Highway Safety Administration as any four-wheeled electric vehicle whose top speed is greater than 20 miles per hour but not greater than 25 miles per hour.

While these electric vehicles must meet specific federal safety standards, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has determined that they cannot be legally driven on state roadways since they fail to meet state safety inspection requirements for a passenger vehicle.
