[Oeva-list] Medium-speed electric vehicles

Hi all - 

I'm doing a little research on classifications of EVs, and found that Washington, Montana, and a couple other states have "medium-speed electric vehicle" classifications on the books. In Montana, for example, MEVs have a maximum speed of 35 mph, operate under their own power via electric motor and batteries or ultracapacitors, are fully enclosed with a minimum of one door, etc. 

Does Oregon have anything similar? What's the difference between that and and NEV? Do you know where I could look to find this information? 

Thanks in advance -- you all are the best resource an alternative fuels journalist could have. - khg
