ACEM welcomes the European Commission's Green paper on urban transport. As an association representing the major powered-two and powered-three wheeler manufacturers in Europe, ACEM believes that it is in a privileged position to participate constructively in the ongoing consultation process.
The growing amount of congested traffic on urban roads requires policy-makers to consider all mobility tools available. Powered-two and powered-three wheeled vehicles are effective solutions to problems caused by urban congestion, providing citizens and businesses with improved mobility and accessibility in cities.
The current vehicle fleet in Europe amounts to approximately 30M vehicles, with between 2M and 2.5M new motorcycles and mopeds being sold every year. This trend confirms that EU citizens see these vehicles as an answer to their daily mobility needs.
