The state of Montana has just passed a law raising the speed limit for neighborhood electric vehicles from 25mph to 35mph. Montana becomes the first state in the nation to allow the increasingly common NEVs to travel at the higher speeds keeping up with regular cars on city streets. Cars like the AEV Kurrent, and Zenn will now be more practical to operate in these conditions. Washington state has also passed a similar law that has yet to be enacted. The Montana house also passed a bill providing up to $500 in tax credits for drivers who use biodiesel fuels but that one hasn't been passed by the senate yet.
