Comment:¬† Although LSVs/NEVs were originally targeted towards the consumer market, the majority of GEM’s sales through the years have been to commercial customers. SVR predicts this segment will continue to be a strong growth area for LSVs. Historically commercial customers have been more likely to look for leasing options than private customers in the STOV market. For some commercial purchasers they can more easily lease vehicles using funds from their operating budgets than purchase them from a capital budget.
