ECCT EV experience workshop

The ECCT's Mobility committee today hosted an electric vehicle (EV) experience workshop to highlight the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for the EV mobility transition in Taiwan. The workshop, which was arranged by ECCT members representing European car brands and attended by government officials from the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) and other agencies, consisted of actual EV driving and charging experience as well as briefings and discussions between government and industry players to discuss plans for EV charging infrastructure development and related plans. During the workshop, officials were given the opportunity to drive EVs from the Neihu district in Taipei to the Linkou district in New Taipei City and then find charging points for the vehicles in order to help them understand the practical difficulties EV drivers face when recharging their vehicles. Furthermore, the workshop provided opportunities for EV industry players and government officials to discuss feasible directions for a better EV charging eco-system with a view towards preparing Taiwan for an EV future. Read the press release
