Hungarian state institutions get electric vehicles
Twenty-six electric vehicles were handed over to state institutions, such as the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the National Ambulance Service, at a ceremony on Thursday.
Economy Minister Mihály Varga said his ministry had cooperated with the Public Procurement Supply Directorate on a centralised order for 200 EVs this year.
Varga outlined measures the government has taken to raise the proportion of EVs on Hungary’s roads to 30 percent by 2030, including subsidies and tax breaks for EV buyers as well as support to build a network of EV charging stations across the country.
He noted that there are now more than 3,500 EVs in Hungary, nearly double the number just one year ago.
