BG Automotive Starts Essembling Electric Cars

BG Automotive, a young Philadelphia company, has already started assembling low-speed (25mph max) electric vehicles that will be available as soon as, well, now.  The company website states their 4-door hatchbacks will be available “Oct/Nov/Dec 2008″.  The BG NEV will be roughly $16,000. However, it will not be legal in Pennsylvania until the state senate breaks from its election recess and passes Senate Bill 152.  This bill will make low-power cars street-legal in the state.  This Pennsylvania Enquirer clipping has more info. Company owner Barry Bernsten, says their NEV will have a steel body, unlike a lot of other NEVs, so it shouldn’t have trouble meeting safety requirements. If the bill is not passed, BG will have to ship its vehicles out of state. With a lot of states allowing tractors and other farm equipment on their roads, there really is no reason why NEVs should not be allowed.
