Advocacy

LEVA-EU – a voice and influencer among decision-makers

LEVA-EU monitors all EU legislation and policy making in the light electric vehicle sector. Light electric vehicles are the future of transport, yet complicated regulations are stifling this potential growth.

Light electric vehicles businesses will transform towns and cities, have a positive impact on the environment and improve safety for millions of people.

It is vital that those making the decisions listen to those who know the sector the best.

We are in regular contact with all of our members about the challenges they face in running a light electric vehicles business, which means we are able to feed back these experiences to policy-makers. LEVA-EU champions its members in the corridors of power, allowing their voices to be heard.

We are also in close contact with those making the decisions, allowing us to apply pressure to get the best deal for our members.

We are open to proposals for partnerships in EU projects, provided the project is directly related to light, electric vehicles. Please contact [email protected].
