Hungary's largest electric vehicle charging station has been inaugurated in Sormás, Western Hungary.

NKM Mobilitas constructed the charging point near the M7 motorway in Sormás and plans on opening more across the country.

The facility cost tens of millions of forints to complete and has the capacity to charge nine vehicles at the same time.

Managing director of the unit of national utilities holding company NKM, Szabolcs Balogh, said the company now operates 87 electric charging points across the country and plans to open a further ten-plus in the coming months, mostly close to motorways.

According to MTI, the government winded up a subsidy program for the purchase of electric vehicles at the end of August, but replaced it with another, this one with simplified conditions, in October.
