Going-Electric, the European Association for Battery Electric Vehicles
Going-Electric is a non-profit association. It represents the interests of businesses, associations, NGOs and individuals that promote the electrification of mobility and sustainable transport with offices located in Paris and EU headquarters Brussels.
The Association’s main endeavor is to push for EU legislation and incentives that would bring EVs faster to market. Working daily with EU stakeholders, the association wants to make sure that tailor-made and ambitious incentives (financial and legal) are adopted at EU level in the coming years.
“We are pleased to be partners with cars21.com”, declares Jacques de Selliers, Founder and Managing Director of Going-Electric. “This website is a most valuable asset for all people involved with electric vehicles, which undoubtedly are the conveyance of the future yet - available today!”
Going-Electric believes that the future for vehicles is electric and that battery-electric vehicles represent the biggest hope to transform the transport sector into a sustainable industry. Indeed the association stresses the opportunity EVs represent in terms of reducing foreign oil dependency, cutting CO2 emissions, reducing air and urban pollution and noise.
With this in mind and the lack of an existing framework that could help EVs come to market, Going-Electric has decided to voice the needs of all EV industry stakeholders and make sure that financial incentives are adopted to break the technology barrier and enable widespread commercialisation.
The objective of the European Association for Battery Electric Vehicles is "to ensure European policies and directives leading to research subsidies and incentives to producers, consumers and cities that will enable Europe to become a leader in BEVs, both in terms of production of BEVs and their parts and in terms of BEV commercialisation".
