The reason Daimler Chrysler's Global Electric Motorcars (GEM) subsidiary can be in business is the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's 1998 creation of the Low Speed Vehicle (LSV) standard. LSV is sort of a cheat, a way to make electric vehicles viable by eliminating every obstacle in their way. All those pesky regulations about side-impact door beams, airbags, substantial bumpers, and extensive crash testing? Forget 'em. As long as your four-wheel vehicle is capable of 20 mph (but not more than 25), doesn't operate on roads with speed limits over 35, and runs on electricity, you're exempt. These limited-use vehicles also help manufacturers meet California's draconian Zero-Emission Vehicle quota. This despite the fact that LSVs are far from what you might call real cars. Comparing a regular car with an LSV is like a 400-meter race between Edwin Moses and John Goodman—in which every hurdle in Moses' way is eight feet tall and Goodman gets a 399.5-meter head start. And then Goodman loses.

The big news on the 2002 GEM is the bounce in horsepower of the 72-volt, GE-built DC motor from 3.5 to 5.0, as well as a new gearbox, a revised interior, and new fiberglass doors. On a percentage basis, that extra power is the same as a Corvette moving from 350 to 500 horsepower! In absolute terms, it's like having a supplementary hedge-trimmer motor aboard. Combined with more aggressive gearing, the result is an 1100-to-1280-pound machine that's not heinously slow. It reaches its 25-mph top speed just as the traffic packed behind it is able to move into another lane and around.

At low speeds, the manual rack-and-pinion steering is heavy, but it lightens up as terminal velocity is approached. The four-passenger GEM's 165/75R-12 tires don't react quickly to steering inputs, but the four hydraulic drum brakes bring things to a halt well enough. The 101.1-inch wheelbase and independent-front and solid-axle-rear suspension of the four-seater model produce a decent ride.

 

At 10 inches wider than a golf cart (a total of 55 inches), the GEM accommodates two across comfortably. The interior now features a glove compartment, but still missing are such amenities as self-canceling turn signals and a ventilation system of any sort. The decoration is more hose-it-out stark than thermoplastic charming, but since the car is limited by its maximum 35-mile range (often less, depending on driving and weather conditions), no one will spend more than an hour or so in it at a time. The new single-hinge thermoplastic doors have no structure beyond the shell itself and close against press-fit latches. The plastic side windows stay up with a cheesy plastic hook at the top of the door, keeping out weather but not noise.
