FAQs

WHAT KINDS OF ELECTRIC VEHICLES DOES GGT MANUFACTURE?

We have two vehicle types- our low speed Vehicle(LSV), are in production and highway capable vehicles are under development. The LSV vehicles are cars, trucks, and vans optimized and built to be all-electric.

WHAT IS AN “URBAN ELECTRIC VEHICLE”?

LSV’s fall under a federal classification of vehicles called Low-Speed Electric Vehicles (LEVs), which can be cars or trucks. They meet all federal safety requirements for a low speed vehicle and can be operated on streets with speed limits up to 35 mph. LSV’s are based upon the micro car and truck technology that’s been proven on the streets of Europe for well over a decade.

HOW FAST CAN IT GO?

GGT LSV’s are approved to drive up to 25 miles per hour by the federal government.

WHERE CAN I DRIVE A GGT ELECTRIC VEHICLE?

GGT low speed electrics can be driven in the U.S.A. on public streets with posted speed limits of 35 mph or less in most states. Certain restrictions apply from state to state, however. Check with your Secretary of State or Department of Motor Vehicles for the specific guidelines for your state. Or email us and we’ll be happy to check for you.

HOW SAFE ARE LOW SPEED VEHICLES?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Association has set strict standards for Urban and Low-Speed Electric Vehicles. The standards include a DOT safety glass windshield, turn signals, brake lights and DOT seat belts as well as DOT tires, among many other safety features. GGT’s Low Speed vehicles meet ALL NHTSA standards, as well as FMVSS 500 standards.

WHAT KIND OF BATTERIES DO GGT URBAN ELECTRICS USE?

Our electric motors are powered by six to eight 12-volt AGM sealed batteries forming a 72-volt or 96-volt systems, with an auxiliary 12-volt battery to power options.

HOW FAR CAN I DRIVE BEFORE RECHARGING THE BATTERIES?

The distance and battery life depends on the model of vehicle, temperature, load carried and your personal driving habits, battery pack, and road conditions. Check out the individual product specs for our vehicles to see each car’s specific battery range.

HOW DO I RECHARGE THE BATTERIES?

To recharge, simply plug the power cord into any standard 110 volt outlet and you’re done. Just let it charge like any other household appliance.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECHARGE THE BATTERIES?

4 hour charge = 80% battery life
8 hour charge = 100% battery life (10 hours for 96 volts)

DO THE BATTERIES HAVE TO DRAIN COMPLETELY BEFORE I RECHARGE?

No, you should plug in your electric vehicle whenever and wherever it’s convenient.

ARE THESE HYBRID VEHICLES?

No, GGT only manufactures all-electric vehicles, which use no gas, oil, or fossil fuels and produce no harmful emissions. Our vehicles require no trips to the gas station and no oil changes.

ARE THERE SPECIAL INCENTIVES OR TAX CREDITS FOR OWNING AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE?

Yes, our vehicles qualify for alternative fuel/electric vehicle federal tax credits, such as the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (EESA) Tax Credit, which is 10% tax credit or $2,500 maximum. Check with your tax adviser for specific details.
