Ever seen an NEV?
A NEV is a "Neighborhood Electric Vehicle".
We used to call them "golf carts".
$300 million of Porkulus will go towards purchasing a fleet of "neighborhood electric vehicles", or NEVs, along with more than $500 million for more traditional electric cars.
The $838 billion economic stimulus bill that passed the Senate contains $300 million for the government to purchase a fleet of "green" cars.
The NEVs, which resemble streamlined golf carts, scoot at up to 25 mph, operate on battery power and can be plugged into 110-volt outlets for charging.
Because they run on batteries, they are useless in cold environments or during the winter. (unless you live in Hawaii).
