Gov’t to spend HUF 7 bln on electric car infrastructure

The government will divert HUF 7 bln from carbon credit sales in 2015 to infrastructure development for electric vehicles, National Economy Minister Mihály Varga said on Monday, according to state news agency MTI. 

The government will soon begin purchasing electric vehicles for its own use, Varga added. The minister renewed his promise that 150 EV charging stations would be set up in the coming months and that the ministry would submit legislative proposals to Parliament about tax incentives to lower costs associated with electric vehicles.

Currently there are 58 electric charging stations in Hungary and the government wants to shorten licensing time for installing new ones.
