My guess is they decided to limit the speed to 28 mph so it would classify as a NEV.
It's designed for the Dutch market. That's a completely different market as opposed to the US. They are trying to compete against the Canta (the Dutch microcar) and the newer micro EV's. Since the Netherlands is going no ICE in the large cities by 2025, there will possibly be a market for them. Most likely for people that live on the outskirts of town as opposed to in the city (which they ride bicycles by the millions). Go to any large city in the Netherlands and you'll see who it's not anything like in the US.
The Canta is the most popular but they are ICE and originally designed for people in wheelchairs but there are ones with two seats. Here's a pic of how micro it is.
