The Hellenic Islands are ideal for electrification testing grounds.

Last year, the authorities there announced that all Greek islands would soon become neutral in terms of carbon dioxide emissions. Greece is trying to reduce its emissions by 55% by 2030.

Thus, they plan to collect about two gigawatts of electricity in the coming years with the help of windmills that will be located along the coast. As Greece has a huge coastline, there is great potential for wind power.

In June last year, Volkswagen launched a major electric mobility project on the Hellenic island of Astypalea. The Germans sent eight battery-powered cars there – for the civil service, but now a new phase of the plan has arrived.

The desire is for Astipalea to completely become an EV location. That is how the VW group started delivering electric cars to the locals. Thanos Papajanis was the first to receive his new battery-powered four-wheeler. He replaced his obsolete Golf 3 with a new ID.3.

In addition, a certain amount of e-up models arrived, then ID.4, but also a few electric scooters coming from Seat (MO 125). In addition, the German group will soon deliver an entire fleet of electric cars that will be part of a special car-sharing system that will be established at Astypalaia.
