Neighborhood Electric Vehicle

A Neighborhood Electric Vehicle is a U. S. designation for battery electric vehicles that are built to have a top speed of 25 miles per hour, have a maximum loaded weight of 3,000 lb. Depending on the particular laws of the state, they are limited to roads with posted speed limits of 45 miles per hour or less. NEVs fall under the United States Department of Transportation classification for low-speed vehicles; the non-electric version of the neighborhood electric vehicle is the motorised quadricycle. A NEV battery pack recharges by plugging into a standard outlet and because it is an all-electric vehicle it does not produce tailpipe emissions. If recharged from clean energy sources such as solar or wind power, NEVs do not produce greenhouse gas emissions. In the state of California NEVs are classified by the California Air Resources Board as zero-emissions vehicles and are eligible for a purchase rebate of up to $1,500 if purchased or leased on or after March 15, 2010; as of June 2014, the GEM neighborhood electric vehicle was the market leader in North America, with global sales of more than 50,000 units since 1998.

Another top selling NEV is the Renault Twizy, launched in March 2012, it was the top-selling plug-in electric vehicle in Europe during 2012, the heavy quadricycle has sold 22,000 units through December 2018. Sales of low-speed small electric cars experienced considerable growth in China between 2012 and 2015 due to their affordability and flexibility. A total of 200,000 low-speed small electric cars were sold in China in 2013, most of which are powered by lead-acid batteries. In 2015, sales rose to 750,000 units, to 1.2 million in 2016. As of December 2016, the stock of LSEVs was estimated to be between 3 4 million units. About 1.4 million low-speed electric vehicles were sold in 2018. Low-speed vehicle is a federally approved street-legal vehicle classification which came into existence in 1998 under Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 500. There is nothing in the federal regulations pertaining to the powertrain. Low-speed vehicles are defined as a four-wheeled motor vehicle that has a gross vehicle weight rating of less than 3,000 pounds and a top speed of between 20 to 25 mph.

Those states that authorize NEVs restrict their operation to streets with a maximum speed limit of 35 or 45 mph. Because of federal law, car dealers cannot sell the vehicles to go faster than 25 mph, but the buyer can modify the car to go 35 mph. However, if modified to exceed 25 mph, the vehicle becomes subject to safety requirements of passenger cars; these speed restrictions, combined with a typical driving range of 30 miles per charge and a typical three-year battery durability, are required because of a lack of federally mandated safety equipment and features which NEVs can not accommodate because of their design. To satisfy federal safety requirements for manufacturers, NEVs must be equipped with three-point seat belts or a lap belt, running lights, brake lights, rear view mirrors, turn signals. Windshield wipers are not required. In many cases, doors may be optional, crash protection from other vehicles is met compared to other non motorized transport such as bicycles because of the use of seat belts.

Regulations for operating an NEV vary by state. The federal government allows state and local governments to add additional safety requirements beyond those of Title 49 Part 571.500. For instance, the State of New York requires additional safety equipment to include windshield wipers, window defroster, odometer and a back-up light, they must be titled and registered, the driver must be licensed. Because airbags are not required the NEV cannot travel on highways or freeways. NEVs in many states are restricted to roads with a speed limit of less; as of February 2012, NEVs are street-legal in 46 states. Some communities are designed to separate neighborhoods from commercial and other areas, connecting them with high speed thoroughfares on which NEVs cannot go or safely; as a result, these vehicles are most common in communities that provide separate routes for them or accommodate slow speed traffic. Communities designed with NEVs and sized vehicles in mind include: Celebration, Florida The Villages and Lady Lake, Florida Peachtree City, Georgia Avalon, CaliforniaOther cities and communities that have adopted NEV-friendly ordinances or have experienced a significant increase of them and street-legal golf cars since 1990 include: Alameda, California Put-in-Bay, Ohio Venice Beach, Los Angeles, California Lincoln, California Palm Desert, California Sun City, Arizona Charleston, South Carolina Myrtle Beach, South Carolina Coronado, California Dunedin, Florida US and EuropeAs of July 2006, there were between 60,000 and 76,000 low-speed battery-powered vehicles in use in the United States, up from about 56,000 in 2004.

Pike Research estimated there were 478,771 NEVs on the world roads in 2011. The two largest NEV markets in 2011 were the United States, with 14,737 units sold, France, with 2,231 units; the different variants of the REVAi, available in 26 countries, sold about 4,600 vehicles worldwide by late 2013, with India and the UK as the main markets. As of October 2015, the GEM neighborhood electric vehicle was the market leader in North America, with global sales of more than 50,000 units since 1998. Another top selling NEV is the Renault Twizy heavy quadricycle, launched in March 2012, with global sales of 15,000 units through April 2015; the Twizy was the top-selling plug-in electric vehicle in Euro

People's Unity Party – Socialist Party

The People's Unity Party – Socialist Party referred to as the Socialist Party was an Icelandic political party which functioned from 1938 to 1968, when the People's Alliance party was created. It was formed through the merger of the Communist Party of Iceland and another splinter group from the Social Democratic Party on the grounds that a united front was needed against fascism, according to the guidelines put forth by the Comintern; the formation of the Socialist Party was a result of the Popular Front line embraced by ComIntern, promoted in Iceland by Einar Olgeirsson of the KFI. Philosopher Jon Olafsson has argued that as it resulted in a split within the larger Social Democratic Party, Comintern did not approve of the merger in its eventual form; this has been contested by historians Thor Whitehead and Hannes H. Gissurarson in books about the communist movement; the Socialist Party maintained cordial relations with the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. In 1939 the chairmanship was taken over by Einar Olgeirsson, after the previous non-communist chairman had left the party in protest against the refusal of his new allies to condemn the attack by the USSR on Finland in the Winter War.

During the Second World War the influence of the party grew. In the 1942 elections it won over the Social Democrats; the Socialist Party supported the formation of the Icelandic Republic in 1944. During the two first years of independence, the Socialist Party took part in a broad coalition government; the coalition broke down on the issue of the claims of the United States to have a military base in Keflavík, which the socialists opposed. In 1956, the Socialist Party took part in the People's Alliance along with the Egalitarian Society and Hannibal Valdimarsson; when the People's Alliance was made into a formal political party in 1968, the Socialist Party was merged into it and thus became defunct as an independent entity.
