Electromobility: Great potential for Switzerland
LeasePlan continues to promote the conversion of vehicle fleets to e-mobility. Zetterlund even goes one step further: "LeasePlan is committed to accelerating the transition to electric vehicles in Switzerland. The data from our EV Readiness Index 2022 shows that Switzerland still has a long way to go in this regard. To make further progress in the desired direction, national policy is needed. We need a nationwide charging infrastructure in Switzerland so that driving electric cars becomes a matter of course for all Swiss people."
