Vattenfall joins EV100 to push for the transition to electric vehicles



The EV100 initiative aims to make electric vehicles "the new normal" under the support of the global non-profit organisation The Climate Group.

Magnus Hall, Vattenfall’s president and CEO said:

“Vattenfall delivers solutions for sustainable and climate smarter living for customers and citizens. Climate change is one of our biggest challenges so we are very happy to join the EV100 initiative as electrical vehicles can make a significant contribution in reducing carbon emissions.”

In January 2017, Vattenfall pledged to replace all its passenger and light commercial vehicles in Sweden, the Netherlands and Germany to electric alternatives.


“We will replace the whole 3.500 car fleet to EV in the coming five years. With the decision we do not only contribute to reducing CO2-emissions in Europe, we also set an example for other companies. We work with our customers to deploy charging infrastructure and building northern Europe’s biggest connected charging network, InCharge,” says Magnus Hall, CEO Vattenfall.
