Greece introduces purchase subsidy for electric vehicles

Specifically, electric cars and light commercial vehicles will be subsidized with 15% of the purchase price. In the case of electric taxis, the state will even cover 25% of the costs. Together with tax breaks, electric vehicles are to become up to 10,000 euros cheaper. Besides, electric cars will be exempt from parking fees for two years. According to Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, the plan also stipulates that “every new building should have the infrastructure to charge electric vehicles”.

The plan also provides for the establishment of charging stations throughout the country. The Greek energy supplier PPC, together with private companies, is to install 1,000 charging stations throughout Greece in the next two to three years, and in the medium term another 10,000 charging stations. Two Memorandums of Understanding have already been signed for this purpose, which, according to a Greek specialist portal, are “probably to be announced soon”. However, there are still no details on the expansion of the charging infrastructure.

Prime Minister Mitsotakis also announced that a Greek island is to become a pioneer in a model project. The as-yet-unnamed island is to run exclusively with electric vehicles.

And, if I judge by how my e-scooter deals with hills (or, to be more precise, doesn't deal with hills), a fairly flat island...?

A flat-ish Greek island... that might narrow the search down a bit?
