Drivers are fed up with government inaction on EV charging infrastructure. This is a major roadblock holding back the mass adoption of EVs, which are crucial to fighting climate change and improving air quality in our towns and cities. That is why are launching our Global ChargeUpNow Initiative.

Together, we want to give a clear and direct message to national and local policymakers about the urgent need for a universal, affordable and sustainable EV charging infrastructure. The solutions already exist – all that is missing is action from policymakers.

- Many drivers are tired of government inactivity when it comes to the expansion of charging stations around the country. This will be a significant bottleneck in the great transition to electric cars that is necessary for our climate and to improve air quality in our cities. That is why we have launched the global initiative ChargeUpNow. Together, we want to draw the attention of both global and local decision-makers to the fact that there is a huge need for a uniform, affordable and sustainable infrastructure of charging stations. The solutions already exist - what is missing is clear action for the decision makers, says Malin Malm, Sales Director at LeasePlan Sweden
