In the US low-speed electric car, there is a name called Neighborhood Electric Vehicle, which may be translated into a community electric car. As the name suggests, it is a scooter in an area close to home. The United States defines it as a top speed of no more than 25 mile/h (40 km). /h), and electric vehicles with a maximum load of no more than 3000 lb (1400 kg), the regulations vary from state to state, and some states set the maximum speed to no more than 45 mile/h (72 km/h). Japan does not make a separate and clearly defined low-speed electric vehicle. European low-speed electric vehicles are classified as lightweight four-wheel vehicles according to the weight of the vehicle. It can also be seen from this point that there are not many low-speed electric vehicles in foreign countries, so there is no industry standard at all. In foreign countries, the most common low-speed electric vehicles are actually golf carts and shuttle buses.


Abroad, the United States GM, Japan's Mitsubishi, Nissan, Fuji Heavy Industries, etc. all  pay more attation  to the development of low-speed electric vehicles. By 2013, only four states in the United States had enacted laws prohibiting low-speed electric vehicles on the road, while the remaining 46 states expressed supportive attitudes. The supported states required low-speed electric vehicle drivers to have driver's licenses and related registrations. . Japan is similar to the United States. Drivers are required to have a driver's license. These vehicles are not personally applicable. They can only be applied for by public organizations and organizations. They need to undergo a series of audits before they can get on the road. Automobile manufacturers need to cooperate with local governments. Only a small amount of pilot use can be used. In Europe, although the low-speed electric vehicles are not separately defined, the EU has extremely high safety requirements, so there are very few low-speed electric vehicles that can really meet the safety standards in the market. It can be seen that foreign countries have higher requirements for drivers and manufacturers. This is one of the reasons why foreign low-speed electric vehicles are not as hot as China.
