Light Utility Vehicles
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Added the Table of ContentsReason: To make sections easier to access
Revised Scope to include 40.23 km/h (25 mph) and to exclude Go-Karts, Fun-Karts, and Dune Buggies.Reason: Clarity
Reviewed normative references and deleted those not used, revised references as necessary, and added referencesReason: To insure applicability and to include new references.
Revised definition of Charged Battery (220.127.116.11), and added definition of Light Utility Vehicle (18.104.22.168b) and Off Highway (22.214.171.124b).Reason: Clarity.
Revised (126.96.36.199) references and requirements for seat restraints.Reason: To insure that seat restraints tested are representative of revised references and intended loading.
Revised Figure 2B and relabeled as Figures 3A and 3B.Reason: To clarify the intent of the standard to eliminate the possibility of a different test procedures being used.
Revised Reflex Reflectors (7.6.6) to include two rear mounted reflectors.Reason: To aid in vehicle identification and location.
Revised the test load placement procedures by adding (7.7.3.d.(1), (2), and (3) and eliminating Figure 3.Reason: For clarity and to define load placement in cargo areas with and without sides
Revised Service Braking (7.9.2.a.5) to include operator only and G.V.W. vehicle configurations, added (7.2.9.b.3, .4, and .5) to test conditions, and added maximum stop distance to Equation 1 and 2.Reason: To define the two loading conditions needed for testing, to record data for Fade Testing, to not allow wheel “lock-up”, to address regenerative braking, and limit stopping distance.
Revised Service Brake Fade by adding (7.9.3.b.2) procedure and the Option 2 (Multiple Stop) procedure.Reason: To provide an alternative procedure that does not require special equipment and test conditions.
