The national procurement of electric vehicles: the Swedish example

One of the major issues holding back the growth of electric vehicles (EVs) in Sweden is their availability. To deal with this issue, the city of Stockholm and  energy company Vattenfall embarked on joint procurement of electric and hybrid vehicles.

The initiative resulted in a two-year framework agreement involving six vehicle suppliers. Over 800 EVs have been purchased thanks to this agreement, and the data and feedback it has gathered has proved valuable for preparing the future rollout of EVs and infrastructure.
