Chinese-made Miles OR70 NEV drawing interest on East Coast

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.
