The inaugural World Electric Vehicle (EV) Day, being launched by ABB and Green.TV, will be a day of global e-mobility appreciation.
World EV Day will be launched on September 9, 2020.
Current and prospective drivers of EVs, 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 recognise 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 other partners and leaders in the e-mobility sector to make the inaugural World EV Day the start of an international mobility movement.
Frank Muehlon, Head of ABB’s global business for E-mobility Infrastructure Solutions, said: “This is a crucial time for transitioning to a new, electrified and sustainable model for mobility.”
Ade Thomas, Founder of media company Green.TV, added: “I’m delighted to be working with ABB, to begin an exciting journey towards a global institution in the e-mobility calendar: 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 Trucks.
Mahesh Babu, Managing Director & CEO, Mahindra Electric Mobility Limited, a company headquartered in India, said: “We are proud to be associated with Green.TV in launching World EV Day, a global day to highlight the importance of sustainable mobility and to make electric mobility a preferred choice of customers across the globe.”
