The focus of this year´s European Mobility Week, from 16 to 22 September, is “mix and move“, an encouragement for citizens to change how they travel. Boosting electric mobility is crucial for this, and Valladolid, Spain, is testing solutions and aiming to be a “lighthouse” city for clean transport in Europe
Emissions generated by transport in Europe are still on the rise, while the electric vehicle sector is struggling to take off. The main obstacles to the spread of e-mobility are the limited batteries on the market and the underdeveloped infrastructure
The local Government of Valladolid has approved economic incentives to boost electric mobility in the city.
