Why Low Speed Electric Vehicles?

A line of Wink Motors brand low speed electric vehicles

If you do any research on sustainable transportations, there’s no doubt that low speed electric vehicles are on your radar. Low speed vehicles, or LSVs, are small, lightweight vehicles that typically have a max speed under 30 mph.

The small size alone makes them great for the environment, but when paired with an electric motor, like in all Wink Motors’ models, they’re becoming an ecological powerhouse to fight against gas dependencies and emissions. But aside from environmental reasons, why are LSVs so great?

Low speed electric vehicles are cost-effective

Not only is the initial price of some models nearly half the price of the cheapest gas cars on the market (A Wink Sprout is only $8,995), but you will also save a fortune on gasoline. While this is true with any electric vehicle, the cheapest full sized EV costs three times as much.

Even the cost of charging your electric LSV is miniscule. Our vehicles typically cost under $2 to fully charge, and if you go with one of our solar models, some of that charge will be completely free. The cost to charge from a plug is pretty consistent between brands, but solar po

wer without an aftermarket add-on is rare. If you’re adamant about getting the cheapest charge, the Sprout Solar and Mark 2 Solar are your best options. 

LSVs are convenient and easy to use

They are small and lightweight, making them easy to maneuver in tight spaces and navigate through traffic. They’re perfect for short trips around town, as they can fit in the smallest parking spaces imaginable. Since many can be charged through any normal outlet, you don’t even have to find special charging stations.  

Not in a high traffic city? Winks are perfect for any situation in which you’d use a golf cart (except of course on an actual golf course). The only difference is a Wink doesn’t expose you to the elements. While many LSV brands offer doors, AC, etc., Wink offers them without any additional cost.

LSVs are safe and reliable

While not all options on the market have a full set of safety features, all models from Wink Motors have seat belts, headlights, turn signals, and just about everything you’d expect from a normal car. 

While your safety is probably your biggest concern, LSVs are also safer for everyone around you. Their small size makes them much safer for pedestrians than a full-sized vehicle, which makes them perfect for family neighborhoods and city streets alike. And everyone will thank you for contributing to less traffic, noise, and pollution. 


It’s obvious that electric vehicles are the future. But the fuel source of a car is just one factor. LSVs are more cost-effective, environmentally friendly, convenient, and safe than full-sized options. Plus, you won’t need to wait for technology to catch up with your budget.

Wink Motors’ LSVs start at just $8,995, while the cheapest Tesla model comes in at $43,990, so the wave of the future is in your grasp today. Join the LSV revolution!
