Austria will connect a series of electric vehicle (EV) charging points in a bid to boost EV ownership in the country. 

From April 2017, 11 electricity providers will combine their charging stations into one network of 1 300 public points throughout the nation – according to Austria’s transport minister, Joerg Leichtfried.

The nationwide network of charging stations will make it easier for drivers to recharge their vehicles in addition to helping the nation reduce CO2 emissions.
