 Largest-Electric-Vehicle-Fast-Charging-Network-Estonia-i-MiEVAt the end of this year Estonia will have the biggest network of fast charge stations for electric cars in Europe.

The chosen model is Terra 51DC fast charger that can fill up an electric vehicle in 30 minutes. The plan is to space these fast charge stations at maximum 50 kilometers apart along main routes to eliminate the concern about the electric cars range.

The growing number of electric cars is driving a global market opportunity for charging solutions to support the electric grid.

A step ahead made by the Estonian government for a better electric vehicle charging network was to provide 507 Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric cars to social workers around the country. More than that, Estonia offers subsidies of up to 50 percent for private Electric Vehicle purchases.

Earlier in the year, the Estonian government started its push for a better Electric Vehicle charging network, providing 507 Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric cars to social workers around the country. In addition, Estonia offers subsidies of up to 50 percent for private Electric Vehicle purchases. Those 507 Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric cars were a push forward mad by the Estonian government.

“The Estonian government would like to ensure that driving an EV in Estonia is as comfortable and safe as driving any other car,” said Jarmo Tuisk, director of the Innovation and Technology Division at the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications, which offers more information about the Electric Mobility Programme for Estonia.

Estonia’s electric mobility is financed by the Green Investment Scheme, funded by the export credit agency KredEx as part of the national government’s plan to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
