On 5 September, in Friedrichshafen, more than 60 companies attended a meeting and unanimously voted in favor of a review of the current regulations for electric bicycles and light electric mopeds. They gave ETRA a mandate to represent them and to initiate a consultation with the European Commission.
On 25 September a second meeting took place in Las Vegas at Interbike and on 29 September there was a meeting in Brussels. These two meetings, attended by more than 30 companies, resulted in concrete proposals for the modification of the legislation.
The industry believes that the proposed modifications are necessary in order to prevent legislation from obstructing innovation, technical development, diversification and competition.Going-Electric
