Re: Electric vehicles now required to conform to ECE R100

Not correct now I am afraid. As of last week ALL cars with rechargeable energy storage systems will need laboratory testing to prove they comply with RESS ECE R100. Anyone converting may be pulled on this when they apply to change the V5. Anyone applying to IVA a vehicle will need to prove it compli...

PEEL TRIDENT EV

Well it just had to be done, nice and light, fairly well streamlined, lithium pack and a hub motor in the rear wheel, silent and funny to see on the roads. Just the lights to sort and a little to remove from the grp around the tyres as you can hear it catch at the end of this little clip. What fun w...

Re: ETRIKE BY MILLS EXTREME VEHICLES LTD

Then you can have handle bar brakes. On mine we have 2 rear wheels that are more than 460mm (centres) apart so it is classed a...

Re: ETRIKE BY MILLS EXTREME VEHICLES LTD

Have you read the rules re brakes for MSVA? Open to interpretation. Moped rules differ but you need to be under 4kw. I have passed one with dual brakes.
