Europe EV Policy

I recently had the opportunity to chat with Olivier Onidi, Director of Innovative & Sustainable Mobility in the European Commission, about EU electric vehicle (EV) policy. He had some interesting things to say regarding overall EU policy as well as some country-specific policies. Here is a video of that interview:

Estonia is indeed a strong EV leader, especially in its support of a nationwide fast-charging charging network. It’s a little surprising to see Estonia standing out as such an EV leader, but then again, maybe not.

Norway is also mentioned. The Scandinavian country is the undisputed champion of the EV world. It’s a country everyone should be emulating.

But “every single [EU] nation is creatively looking at developing policies” to support EVs, and that’s uplifting. Let’s just hope they move closer to the Norway ideal fast!
