New moped category in traffic code created in France

PARIS, France – The legalisation of e-scooters in France seems to be imminent with the creation of a new vehicle category in the French traffic code. The new so-called ‘cyclomobiles légers’ or light mopeds category was welcomed by the e-scooter industry. However, industry organisation LEVA-EU has warned for a big setback.
The Swedish company Vässla is one of the few manufacturers that has a type-approved e-bike without pedals on the market and thus complies with the new traffic code in France.
