MOTUS-E Event, pushing forward e-mobility

Discussions and update meetings with an only, common target: encourage the spread of electric mobility in Italy.

What is the status of e-mobility in Italy? And what can be done to facilitate its large-scale adoption?

To answer these questions, MOTUS-E – association precisely established to promote the electric mobility – hosted an event gathering all the actors involved in the transition, from the entire chain: energy providers, car makers, battery producers (just to name some) and the Institutions.

An important opportunity for discussions, that gave a cue to interesting debates and to an exchange of knowledge and experiences. A starting point to give an additional impetus to the process of transition into the era of e-mobility.

The event started with the “Call” launched by MOTUS-E to promote the most innovative ideas and projects in the field of electric mobility. Six talents and nine start-ups submitted their ideas. Connectivity was the main topic, declined in different forms but with an (obvious) common denominator: sustainability.

Among the most significant moments, the focus on the “electric cities” - that saw some particularly environmental friendly local administrations bringing their concrete examples - and the meeting dedicated to the obstacles and the opportunities for the development of the sector, during which strategic and topical issued were addressed: from eco-incentives to the carmakers’ approach, up to the technologies currently available both for the batteries and the charging infrastructure.

On this occasion Massimo Nordio, CEO of Volkswagen Group Italia, reiterated the commitment of the Group on e-mobility: “Our mission is Electric for all, which is making the e-car affordable for everyone. And at the heart of the strategy is the MEB, the modular platform specifically designed for the production of zero emission model, that thanks to its flexibility enables to produce vehicles belonging to different segments, thus reducing the costs. By 2028 the Volkswagen Group will launch more than 70 new full electric models”.

The way towards e-mobility is paved, and the Group wants to make its mark.
