Budapest (MTI) – In the next year 150 electric car charging points will be set up in Hungary, the economy minister said at the Emobilitas exhibition on Saturday.

Mihaly Varga said he supported the idea of making it obligatory to have a charging point in the car parks of larger shopping malls.

Apart from a regulatory environment that stimulates uptake, it is important that drivers of electric vehicles should be given incentives such as use of bus lanes and free parking, he said.

He said the government was ploughing a significant amount of funding into public transport, and it wants to see the national bus carrier Volan and Budapest transport company BKV procuring electric buses.
