What is a Low Speed Vehicle (LSV)?
On July 1, 2017, Ontario started a new program to allow low speed vehicles (LSVs) on Ontario’s roads.
The pilot program was created to evaluate the use of LSVs over a 10-year period to look at how they coexist with other vehicles and decide whether existing rules of the road are sufficient.
- Low speed vehicles drive at a maximum speed of between 32 km/h and 40 km/h and may not be modified to drive faster than 40 km/h
- Low speed vehicles are only allowed on roads with a speed limit of up to 50 km/h if permitted by municipal by-law, and are allowed to be driven through an intersection where the speed limit of the cross street is not greater than 60km/h
- All of our NXT line of Electric LSVs are street legal in permitted municipalities in Ontario.
