E-Mobility Trends and Targets

SLOCAT traces the development of e-mobility by tracking official targets of countries, cities, companies and automobile companies. It shows what kind of trends and targets the entities are planning for different transport modes (cars, taxis, trucks, two/three-wheelers and others) and for charging infrastructure. The information collected in this e-mobility overview are based on news articles, public speeches, official statements and policies as they have been made public by these entities.
