Inaugural World EV Day
Today marks the first World electric vehicle (EV) Day, a social media-led digital event promoting the benefits of electric vehicles.
Created by media agency Green.TV and technology firm ABB, the event encourages participants to sign a pledge to make their next car an electric one.
Automotive websites DrivingElectric, Auto Express and Carbuyer are media partners for the event, with Nissan, Jaguar Land Rover, Hyundai and Polestar also aboard alongside a number of charging and energy firms.
Ade Thomas, founder of Green.TV, said: “The rapid transition to electrified, sustainable mobility has never been more urgent. With World EV Day, we are hopeful that we have helped energise and highlight the need to decarbonise transport and encourage everyone to look to electric as a way to continue to build prosperity, enable access and deliver a sustainable way of life.”
