OliverH Posted October 11, 2016 Share Posted October 11, 2016 The upcoming regulation (PLEV) will give the manufacturer a new challenge to meet requirements. The Personal Light Electric Vehicle (PLEV) standard has some key requirements: redundant power management (batteries and power supply at the components) redundant control system (Control board and motor driver) Authorisation device (to start the EUC) a bell connected with the device, at least at start up to make sure it's carried with the rider fatigue and endurance tests of core components battery safety Manufacturer willing to follow this path will see sales numbers in the end they've never seen before. Others not following this path will continue focusing on Asia/ America up to the moment where regulation will also hit them on this market. In the next two years we'll see up and downs of manufacturer and it looks like we see a dramatic shift in sales ranking. It's time for the underdogs with engineering skills and a structured way to drive business. This companies are more open to market requirements and visit exhibitions in Europe and so on, visit distributors or conducting sales launches at the main markets up front.
