MindsinMotion. Approximately 26% of cars on Dutch roads by 2025—1.8 million out of 7 million—could be EVs, according to a Dutch consortium.
The consortium, Electric Cars Europe (ECE), which includes InnoSys, energy company Essent, the Dutch importer of Lotus sports cars, and green project developer United Momentum Group, is developing a smart electricity distribution system and will invest €100 million (US$155 million) in the purchase of two hundred electric vehicles.
Initially, ECE will retrofit the Lotus Elise and Volkswagen Golf into EVs, and import EVs produced by Detroit Electric (a joint venture between ZAP and China Youngman Automotive).
