LEVA-EU member Vässla recently launched their brand new Vässla Bike after two years of developing in Sweden. According to CEO Rickard Bröms, ‘’Vässla Bike is slender as a kick-scooter, has the visual presence of an e-bike and the driving experience of an electric moped’’.
The Vässla Bike is a type approved L1e-B moped, throttle based and without pedals. Its sit-down position makes riding safe, comfortable and intuitive. Vässla believes that this light electric vehicle is suitable for all use-cases from personal to commercial or for global sharing fleets. Besides that, sustainability was one of the key factors to develop the Vässla Bike, which is also reflected in a sustainable production and recycling process.
The Vässla Bike has a maximum design speed varying from 20 to 45 km/h, depending on specific national regulations. Most member states only have one type of moped in their traffic code, i.e. the 45 km/h. However, some member states do have a separate category for low speed mopeds. LEVA-EU has all further details on national traffic code regulations for mopeds. For information, please contact Daan van Dieren, firstname.lastname@example.org.
