EU Commission initiates review of e-bike and LEV type approval

GHENT, Belgium – The European Commission has initiated a review of Directive 168/2013 which regulates the type-approval for vehicles with two or more wheels. Since January 2017 all e-bikes, except those with assistance up to 25 km/h and a maximum continuous rated power of 250W, must comply with the European harmonised technical rules laid down in type-approval legislation. That might change in the future.
The European Commission has asked TRL, a UK based research centre specialised in mobility, to investigate the position of LEVs. - Photo Bike Europe
