Norway on track: A member of Norwegian Parliament recently laid out targets for the traffic industry. Already this year, all communal vehicles will become electric, with public transport to follow by 2020. By 2022, all cabs have to run on electricity as well. From there it is only a “small” step until, in 2025, all newly registered private cars shall be electric, too. Today, 20 percent of Norway’s motorised four-wheelers are EVs.
Japan charges ahead: Together with NEC Corporation, Seven & i Holdings will install 3,380 wall boxes for EV charging at its supermarkets, malls and department stores. From November on, they can be used with charge cards supplied by the Nippon Charge Service.
Cornwall charged up: The first rapid EV charging station has been installed at the Eden Project in British Cornwall. Another 15 will follow before the end of the summer.
Bolloré goes Cambodia: The French EV sharing service is now offering its services to tourists visiting the country’s ancient Angkor Wat temples. As Blue Solutions, the company signed a 6-month trial contract. The blue cars can be hired for 80 dollars a day.
