    Everyone seems to be assuming that this is aimed at the American market and discussing our legal issues. Is that a fact? Their website mentions "global distribution".

    It can’t be for USA use, it drives (in the video) on the wrong side of the road.

    To the USA DOT four wheels may make it a car, elsewhere maybe not. Norwegian regulations that usually follow EU regulations allow a four-wheel motorcycle. Four-wheel ATV’s are often registered in this group. If they get below the max weight limit. If light enough and have less than a 50ccm engine there is the moped class. “Cars” in this category is in some areas quite popular due to tax and toll road rules. You better not be in a hurry as there is a speed limit too.

    Again, tax regulations may favour to fit a max 40km/h speed governor to an ATV as it then can qualify to be a “farm” tractor. Same for UTV’s.

    Then, if light enough the Pegasus probably fit “motorcycle” regulations in most of Europe. If to heavy, limit road speed to 40km/h and it could be a “tractor”.o_O
