    Local organization and central Paris storefront to meet the rising demand for electric, two-wheeled vehicles in the city of light.

    CAKE, the Swedish maker of premium lightweight, electric motorcycles and LEVA-EU member, today announced an expanded commercial focus on France, with Paris becoming a key city in the company’s multi-city structure philosophy. With a sales team already in place, plans include a growing local team to better serve both B2B and B2C customers. A CAKE Pop-Up Store just opened its doors in the Marais district of Paris, with a full-service CAKEsite expected to open later this year.

    Paris is a key market for us, being the epicenter of innovative, environmental legislation, a place that is buzzing with excitement for clean transportation options. We simply couldn’t think of a better city to head to next,” said Stefan Ytterborn, Founder and CEO of CAKE.

    Paris bans cars
    Paris is targeting a late 2023 introduction of legislation, effectively limiting the movement of cars in its city center. CAKE electric mopeds and motorcycles will be exempt from the ban that is expected to remove approximately 100,000 cars from the streets each day. Additionally, two-wheelers using combustion engines will by September 1st be subject to parking fees, while electric alternatives continue to enjoy free parking on Paris streets.

    Paris is leading the way and this is an opportunity for both companies and citizens to embrace a very promising future. Fewer cars and trucks equal less congestion, enabling smoother last-mile delivery chains and cleaner, more liveable cities. Clean, silent, and efficient transportation is our entire reason to exist as a company, so we applaud this exciting development,” added Dominique Dutronc, General Sales Manager France, CAKE.

    The CAKE Pop Up Store Paris is now open and is located on 55 rue Notre Dame de Nazareth.

    The French government has announced an unprecedented conversion bonus for the purchase of electric or very low-polluting vehicles. This figure could reach €6,000 depending on income conditions, with full details yet to be confirmed. In practice, the new premium will replace the current subsidies offered in France.

    Alongside this incentive, the French government has highlighted further plans to increase the prevalence of electric two-wheelers in the population. Further communication and coverage regarding the safety of two wheels will be implemented, with safety training incorporated into the B license. Additionally, from 2022 a new generation of radars will be installed with the goal to control noise emissions of two-wheelers.

    Following the publication of the French Decree 2020-1412, it is now allowed for electric mopeds, motorcycles and quadricycles to make use of lanes that are normally reserved for busses and taxi’s. Before the change, only heavy electric vehicles such as cars and vans were allowed to use the lanes thanks to their low emissions figures. This change is meant to ensure a more equal treatment of heavy and light electric vehicles.

    Drivers and riders must use their electric vehicles with a Crit’Air-stickers. The sticker proves that their vehicle has the ‘’zero-emission’’ status which allows them to make use of these lanes.

    However, it is up to the communities to decide whether or not they implement this measure.
