Light Electric Vehicle Association Formed
The Light Electric Vehicle (LEV) industry is organizing a global trade association to develop technical standards for LEVS, and promote use of LEVs worldwide. All component suppliers, manufacturers, assemblers, wholesalers, retailers, and interested individuals are invited to join. The group’s first organizational meeting will be held in Shanghai the day before the China Cycle Show opens its doors on May 3, 2009. Those unable to attend will be able to vote on-line to approve all sections of the 2009-2010 organizational plans.
Light electric vehicles are defined as battery, fuel cell, or hybrid-powered two-or-three-wheel vehicles generally weighing less than 200 pounds (100 Kg). Of this group, electric bicycles are the most common, with the majority of products manufactured and sold coming from China.
An early dues structure has been announced which for those participating in it will be exempt from whatever dues structure is created by the membership later in the year, for a year. Individual dues are $25 and corporate memberships are $300. The organization will be registered as a limited liability corporation by mid-February.
There are also two Sponsorship categories for companies wishing to take advantage of free advertising on the LEVA website the first year, the startup dues will be $500; and for $750, the corporate member will receive the free advertising for a year and also be listed their company logo as a Corporate Sponsor. Industry advocate, Ed Benjamin, is the founder and Sid Kuropchak is the executive director. Vivian Wei is the China contact and in the future a European contact will be named.
