The Association's activities involve, among others, all types of vehicles- passenger, commercial, trucks, etc. - electric or hybrid vehicles as integrated mechanical constructions, but also all their supporting subsystems, mechanical, electrical, electronic, software, etc.
Networks and support infrastructures for the above vehicles are also included, in order for them to be more widely spread and in accordance with the relevant policies and action plan of the State, e.g. electric power distribution networks for electric vehicles and public charging stations for their batteries (conventional or advanced technology), networks of organised maintenance/replacement centres for electric batteries, networks for electric city car rental stations, etc.
Additionally, it is an important element to monitor Global and European legislative development, providing incentives or removing disincentives for the use of electric vehicles, as well as the legislative activity that encourages car manufacturers to expand their production of electric or hybrid vehicles with zero or almost zero pollution.
"The CCCI welcomes the E-Mobility Association and through its long experience and professionalism will support the Association in achieving its goals and objectives," the Chamber's announcement concluded.
