Despite years of constant growth, in 2020 and 2021, speed pedelec sales in Belgium went slightly backwards. This was probably entirely due to Corona. Working from home became the rule, so demand for speed pedelecs for commuting fell. Also, the fact that shops had to close a few times put a damper on sales, since speed pedelecs are still mostly bough in shops.

But the registrations for the first half of 2022 show a full recovery. Between 1 January and 30th June, a total of 7,566 speed pedelecs have been registered compared to 6,266 registrations in the same period last year. That is an increase of more than 17% and almost 22% better than in the first six months of 2019.

As for electric mopeds, the results do not yet confirm a final transition from ICE to electric motors. In category A (<25km/h), 520 vehicles were registered in the first 6 months. That is just over 14% more than in the same period in 2021. However, in category B (< 45 km/h) registrations fell to 1,335 vehicles, which is almost 20% less than the first half of 2021.
