LEVA-EU welcomes change of Belgium’s Traffic Code for personal light electric vehicles

April 4th The Belgian Parliament has voted in favour of an amendment relating to an increase of the maximum allowed speed for personal light electric vehicles.
Formerly the maximum speed in Belgium was 18 km/h but that will now be increased to 25 km/h. Belgium uses the European standard for personal light electric vehicles EN 17128/2017 as a basis for the revision.

It is important to bear in mind that the texts voted by Belgium Parliament still need to be published in the Official Journal before coming into effect. LEVA-EU will keep you updated on our website as soon as the text is published.

Manufacturers, importers and distributors on for the Belgium market should take note that this change applies to:
1) Self-balancing one and two wheeled electric vehicles
2) Electric scooters without a seating position as well as electric hoverboards
