The inaugural World EV Day, taking place on September 9th 2020, will be a day of global e-mobility appreciation. Current and prospective drivers of Electric vehicles, alongside local transport authorities and fleet operators, will be encouraged to recognise the crucial role which they play in driving the shift to Sustainable Road Transport and a zero-emission future for all.
The day will become an annual institution and will also recognize the vital role which reliable and fast charging infrastructure, grid reinforcement and the integration of renewable power generation must play in enabling a truly sustainable transport ecosystem.
World EV Day will be working with partners and leaders in the e-mobility sector to make the inaugural World EV Day the start of an international mobility movement.
These partners include charging infrastructure company ABB and most recently premium car maker Polestar.
The day will celebrate global electric mobility, further raising awareness and promoting discussion.
Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar commented:
“We must move forward towards a more sustainable future. I believe that Electric Vehicles are a crucial step on this journey. World EV Day is a great opportunity for us to share our message and be a guiding light for the automotive industry.”
World EV Day aims to drive the shift to sustainable road transport and a zero-emissions future. It will be an open and inclusive digital campaign to engage consumers and policy makers alike.
Ade Thomas, Founder of media company Green.TV, added:
“World EV Day will serve as a day of celebrating e-mobility as a key tool in driving a decarbonised transport future for all.”
Additional partners include, Mahindra Electric Mobility, which manufactures electric vehicles and related technologies, Liberty Charge, which helps deliver power and connectivity infrastructure for on-street EV Charging in residential areas of the UK, and manufacturer of all electric trucks, Volta.
