By contrast, the Maya 300 is based on a Chinese car—the Ben Ben, one of China's top-selling models, made by Chang'an—with dual airbags and anti-lock brakes. The 25-mph limit is regulatory, and varies with state law. In Maryland, a low-speed vehicle requires tags and a licensed driver, but can't go faster than 25 mph. Legislation to create a new "medium speed" category with a 35-mph limit was introduced in the Maryland House last year, but didn't pass the Senate. That limit keeps the Maya 300 off the highway, but Electrovaya CEO Sankar Das Gupta contends that the cars are aimed at urban drivers. "We believe it's the perfect car for running around cities," he says.
