For this purpose, we want to create a million charging points by the year 2030 and the industry will have to participate in this effort, that is what we will be talking about,” said the German Chancellor.

She added that by adding more charging points for EVs would help consumers make the switch from an internal combustion engine to low-emission battery-powered vehicles.
