Hungarian-made electric car charging station inaugurated in Budapest
The ministry estimates that nearly 1,000 charging stations can be built with the help of the grant, Varga noted. He also noted that the government granted Budapest 4 billion forints to purchase 20 electric buses. These buses have been on the roads for three months, he added. Csaba Meszaros, the president of Hungary's Evopro group, said electric car owners will be able to charge their vehicles within 15-20 minutes at the newly-inaugurated station. The station is the result of two years of hard work by ten Hungarian SMEs and the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, he said.
Economy ministry state secretary Istvan Lepsenyi said the government is working to increase Hungary's contribution to the spread of electromobility.
