GEM® electric vehicles are multipurpose, low-speed neighborhood electric vehicles available for sale by Polaris®, a leading manufacturer of off-road vehicles and motorcycles for nearly 60 years. GEM® cars are 100% electric, battery powered, and comply with U.S. federal safety requirements for operation as low-speed vehicles (LSVs).
The GEM® line of electric vehicles have been designed and manufactured since 1998. Owned by Polaris Industries and produced in Spirit Lake, Iowa, GEM® is the market leader in the low-speed vehicle (LSV) industry and has sold more than 45,000 vehicles worldwide. These GEM® cars have been driven more than 450 million miles and, as a result, have saved almost 20 million gallons of gasoline. Our goal is to continue to design innovative, environmentally friendly, worry-free and low-cost-of-ownership vehicles that solve all your transportation or light utility needs.
GEM® cars can be driven on many roads with a posted speed limit of 35 mph or less. It is an ideal vehicle for driving in work sites, campuses, military bases, gated communities, resorts, sports stadiums, or just around the neighborhood. Uses include running errands, commuting to work or school, hauling equipment, transporting people, maintaining grounds, or patrolling parking lots.
Each of the six GEM® models meets all U.S. federal safety standards for low-speed vehicles (LSVs) and is equipped with automotive safety windshield glass, three-point safety belts, turn signals, headlamps and brake lights, horn, mirrors and windshield wipers. With thousands of miles accumulated on GEM test vehicles, you can be assured that quality and safety are our top priorities.
GEM®’s performance has been proven around the globe. Our 2013 vehicles bring new refinements and innovations aimed at raising the bar again.
