April 21, 2006 Now here’s a vehicle that we exect to see a lot more of. Global Electric Motorcars (GEM) has launched a six-passenger street-legal local transportation vehicle for shuttling groups of people. The top spec GEM e6S has a larger battery pack to extend driving range to 40 miles and a utility bed to carry passenger luggage and other cargo. It is designed for planned communities, airports, military bases, parks, resorts, city centres and educational, industrial and commercial campuses where ruggedness and continuous-duty and low cost of operation are an issue. GEM vehicles have a top speed of 25 mph, can be driven on roadways posted up to 35 mph, and meet all federal safety standards for Low Speed Vehicles. They are classified as zero emissions vehicles.
