Our goal is to help Europe to allow PLEV in European Regulation No 168/2013.
Each country are currently defining PLEV local regulations.
In France, a new PLEV regulation will be introduced very soon, but PLEV will be regulated at 25 km/h. Many French people have PLEV capable to achieve an higher speed limit and does not accept this limitation.
The French government doesn’t want to introduce a local regulation for PLEV going up to 45 km/h (like L1e-B for bikes in European Regulation). So, we hope helping other european users to form discussions groups and unions will help everybody to open this discussion with European Governement.
We created a Telegram channel to discuss across all european countries and help all nations.
