"I move electrically" - The fist hours

Particularly encouraging are the data for the electric drive, as they appear according to the first 18 hours of operation of the kinoumeilektrika platform. Note that the platform opened its gates to the public for grant applications on Monday, August 24th.

As expected, the greatest interest in e-mobility comes from large urban centers. In the first place is Attica with a percentage of 39%, followed by Thessaloniki at 12.5%, Heraklion at 9% and Patras at 4%.

Specifically, 938 applications have been made so far, of which the lion's share belongs to the Electric Bicycles with a percentage of 79.1%, followed by the Electric Scooters and Tricycles with a percentage of 12.37% and finally the I.X. passenger cars as well as van commercial vehicles, which in total approach 10%.

According to Minister Kostis Hatzidakis, "within 30 hours, ie until yesterday (25/8) at 00:00 - 1.5 million Euros had been absorbed from the 45 million we have until the end of the year. A total of 100 million Euros are available for the period 2020-2021. Within 30 hours, more than 1,000 vehicles have been subsidized, about 1,400 ".

It is worth noting that the electric bicycle, starred in the preferences of those interested. The reason is that on the one hand they receive the largest subsidy and on the other hand the new generation is more aware of the issues of movement with a strong environmental awareness.
