What kind of vehicle is a Kurrent?
Kurrent is classified as an NV or Neighborhood Vehicle. It meets all federal safety requirements for a low speed vehicle and can be operated on streets with speed limits up to 35 mph. Kurrent is based upon the micro car technology that’s been proven on the streets of Europe for more than ten years. Kurrent, like micro cars, evolved from the motorcycle. Thus its frame is tubular and it features struts over shocks – like a motorcycle.

Where can I drive a Kurrent?
