This summer and further on, electric vehicle owners will be able to park and charge their EVs or hybrids at more places in Stockholm. Altogether, there will be 60 new charging points incorporated into the public charging network, InCharge.
"Our aim is to lead the way in the expansion of a functioning charging infrastructure. The charging streets will enable drivers to charge their electric cars where they live and work," says Susanna Hurtig, Head of Vattenfall E-Mobility.
Full support from City of Stockholm
The charging streets are part of the City of Stockholm's initiative for a more sustainable city environment and should help traffic become less dependent on fossil fuels.
"We want to remove obstacles so that Stockholmers needing a car can choose an electric car. It's all about being able to charge your car easily," says Daniel Helldén, Traffic Commissioner from City of Stockholm.
