The SBCCOG has demonstrated Neighborhood Electric Vehicles (NEVs) in their Local Use Vehicle (LUV) program with about 100 drivers and found that NEVs can provide on an average 26% of the total commuter trips and 23 to 33% emission reductions. As a next step, the SBCCOG began to explore electric vehicles that could operate for longer ranges with a new program - Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV)Demonstration Project.  Similar to the LUV program, the BEV program rotated vehicles among South Bay residents providing an opportunity for people to use an electric vehicle in their everyday life.
