GEM 20 years

GEM Turns 20 in 2018!


Minneapolis, November 21, 2018 – Global Electric Motorcars manufactured its first all-electric vehicle in 1998. That same year the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration designated a new class of motor vehicle; the Low Speed Vehicle or LSV.  Since then over 50,000 vehicles have been manufactured and are found on college & university campuses, police departments, city governments, corporate campuses and the garages of environmentally conscious drivers all over the United States, Canada and Europe.  Help Polaris celebrate GEM’s 20th and take a look at the history of the greatest LSV ever made!
