Speaking to the transport select committee on 27th April Grant Shapps announced the inclusion of electric scooter legislation to the upcoming Queen’s Speech.
This marks a historic moment in the UK’s progression toward becoming a leader in zero emission transport solutions.
Having received the most innovation funding of any UK scooter company, bo mobility welcomes this opportunity to boost British investment to the sector.
Following news that electric scooter legislation would be introduced through The Queen’s speech, bo mobility CEO and co-founder Oscar Morgan said “Legalising people to transition away from cars to more efficient, enjoyable modes of transport will be seen as one of the great transport disruptions of this century.”
“This validation of electric scooters as a vehicle category can finally release the chokehold on British investment that we and other innovators to the sector have been waiting for.”
“e-scooters are the perfect urban vehicle: zero pollution, fun to ride, more convenient than an e-bike and easy to store at home.”
“The UK is uniquely well positioned to become a global innovation leader in urban electric vehicles, drawing on a wealth of relevant experience from the automotive and advanced engineering industries.” “With over 750,000 private scooters already estimated on UK streets, we are delighted to see this important and obvious step taken to create an appropriate framework for safe regulation.”
