I am new to the list, though I have been lurking for a while reading up on the xm-2000 threads.
I am taking delivery of the xm-2000 here in New Jersey (I'll report back the condition upon arrival)...
In antcipation of getting the XM I have asked three different sources the question: "what are the requirements for xm's registration?" The answers, in order were:
1) from the DMV helpline in Trenton: "You cannot ride an electric (I think I had called it a scooter) anywhere in NJ (!)"
2) From someone behind the counter at the local DMV: "Ask Trenton"
3) a random cop in my town: "No problem, just register it as...well I don't know. Ask Trenton."
The new jersey Dmv site gives a fascinating history of the electric car--but says nothing about electric vehicles... A moped is defined as having pedals.
in some sense I *want* to register it--so I don't get hassled on the local roads...I am wondering what the best first regiostration approach should be. I want to know what I am trying for to avoid putting myself in the hands of whatever bureaucrat is at window #3....
Any Jersey registration help out there?
thanks in advance
