A Debate on Electric Vehicles

Conferencia | Spanish

February 20 OF 2020 from 07:00 PM to 08:30 PM

Electric power is clearly the future of the automotive industry. Legal requirements and the fight against pollution are forcing automakers to accelerate their decarbonisation efforts, although this process is not advancing as quickly as we might like.

Individual and corporate consumers tend to have many doubts when purchasing an electric vehicle. At this session, we will hear what manufacturers, electric companies and government agencies think about this significant change in mobility. We will explore the issues that are currently hindering the decarbonisation process: Why aren’t electric vehicles more widely available? Why are they still so expensive? When will longer-range models be introduced? Why is Spain lagging behind the rest of the world in charging infrastructure? Will the government develop stable plans to encourage change?

Don’t miss this chance to learn more about electric vehicles and participate in an open discussion at the end of the session.
