Although it looks like a typical 4-door subcompact car, the Miles OR70 is a Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV). In most states it's limited to roads with speed limits of 35 mph or less. Most people equate NEVs with open-air golf carts
, but the OR70 is designed with more automotive features and appearance. It also costs more: about $14,800 to $16,900. Miles Automotive
is based in Malibu
, California, and is promoting the vehicle to East Coast dealers
where officials say the OR70 is an excellent choice for security teams, parking enforcement, meter reading and mail delivery. The Chinese-made car has a range of 60 miles and can be fully recharged in five to seven hours.
