Leipzig, Tesla, Nissan, New York, New Zealand.

Leipzig got a plan to become Germany’s most electrified city. A new proposal wants to see 80 percent share of electric vehicles in municipal fleets by 2019 and electric buses only by 2030. On the citizen side, electric cars may park for free for at least five years and an electric scooter sharing may be introduced as well. Commercial vehicles would benefit from extended delivery slots – if they drive electrically and come from so-called urban hubs that centralise goods transfer. A new e-mobility division within city hall will be responsible to execute each project.
