The Netherlands and Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs)

Describes the developments for a Netherlands outline for Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs). This outline describes the rules for LEVs which are excluded from the scope of EU Regulation 168/2013. This concerns vehicles without seats (e.g. e-steps), self-balancing vehicles (e.g. the Segway) and vehicles with pedal assistance (e.g. e-bikes and e-cargo bikes). The outline is published in December 2020 and will be elaborated in to a definitive policy framework by mid-2021.
