Tex Gunning, CEO of LeasePlan, said:

“LeasePlan and our customers want to move faster towards EVs, but the lack of sufficient charging infrastructure globally is a major road block. Governments around the world must step up now and deliver on demand for zero-emission mobility by investing in a comprehensive public charging infrastructure, and incentivizing private charging stations in homes and offices. This is no time to sugar-coat it: this lack of action is holding us back. Only if governments get their act together on charging infrastructure will we be able to meet our climate commitments, clean up our dirty air and build back better. We all need to speak up so now that the new normal can be a green normal.”
