The E-bike industry has decided to consult with European Commission on legislation concerning the production of electric bicycles.
At a busy meeting that took place on September 5th at Eurobike, the first steps were made to lobby for better European regulations for two and three-wheeled Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs). Some 70 delegates from about 50 companies attended the meeting.
The ETRA/LEVA organised meet trashed out appropriate regulations, discussing whether participants wanted a change in the current legislation as a result of which today 250 Watt and 25 km/h limitations apply for pedelecs, whereas vehicles exceeding these limits are subject to the moped type-approval procedure. The meeting voted almost unanimously for a change of legislation.
The meeting also unanimously mandated ETRA to start up discussions with the European Commission on creating better regulations for E-bikes, two and three-wheeled LEVs.
