Erklärung seitens eWheelz™

In Finnland wurde nun schliesslich dem Parlament der angekündigte Gesetzesentwurf vorgelegt. Der Bericht ist enorm umfänglich, lang und detailliert. im Grossen und Ganzen, heisst es darin, dass ab dem 01.01.2016 alle elektromotorbetriebenen Fahrzeuge in Finnland anerkannt werden und fortan legal unterwegs sein können, sofern diese einige Punkte berücksichtigen. Mit einem Maximum von 1000 W Motorenstärke und einer bauartbedingten Höchstgeschwindigkeit von nicht mehr als 15 km/h scheiden jedoch praktisch alle elektrischen Einräder bereits aus. Denn ist ein stärkerer Motor verbaut und sind Geschwindigkeiten bis zu 25 km/h möglich, so fällt man unter die Regelungen eines eBikes und dieses verlangt Reflektoren, Licht, Lenker, zwei Bremsen und so weiter. Dazu kommt dann noch eine Typengenehmigung. Der Gesetzesentwurf ist ähnlich wie dasjenige aus der Schweiz zu betrachten. Es werden zukunftsorientierte Anforderungen gestellt, welche so noch nicht erfüllt werden können und somit wird das elektrische Einrad in Finnland auch weiterhin auf öffentlichen Strassen nicht anerkannt.
