Free parking spaces and charging ports provided for electronic cars in Budapest

Around 250 charging stations will be able to service 500 vehicles within the next few years, and could become regular fixtures around Hungary in future

The National Economy Ministry and the Budapest Municipal Council have signed a cooperation agreement to set up 250 electronic vehicle charging stations across Budapest.

The municipal council will provide free parking spaces with an area for the EV charging stations, while the NGM will allocate 1.9 million euros of non-refundable grants out of its dedicated program for municipalities.

Around 250 charging stations will be able to service 500 vehicles within the next few years, and could become regular fixtures around Hungary in future.

The cooperation agreement is tied to the government’s Jedlik Ányos Plan, a blueprint for the regulatory and support framework required for popularising electromobility.
