‘Dundee Named Europe’s Most Visionary Electric Vehicle City’


In DIGIT today:

‘The World Electric Vehicle Association has named Dundee as Europe’s most visionary city for electric vehicles (EVs). At a ceremony in Kobe, Japan, the association presented Dundee City Council with an ‘E-visionary award’ for its pioneering initiatives to encourage the use of EVs at its annual gathering in Kobe….The city’s council has developed the UK’s largest public sector fleet of clean vehicles, with almost 40% of cars and vans being electric. In addition to this, 15% of taxis are now electric and are able to plug-in at the UK’s first solar-powered charging hubs.’
