Barcelona will be the world capital of the electric vehicle in 2013
(ACN) – Barcelona will be the world capital of the electric vehicle in 2013 as the next edition of the Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS) –the reference world congress in this sector- will take place here. The city has received the baton from Los Angeles (USA) to host the EVS27. Sònia Recasens, Barcelona Deputy Mayor for Business, Economy and Employment, has stated that “Barcelona is the European benchmark for electric mobility and hosting the EVS27 will enable the city to gain worldwide positioning as the front-runner within this strategic sector”. For the companies involved, it is a chance to create international synergies regarding both the creation of new electric vehicle models and the consolidation of its components.
