Norway comes top in Arthur D. Little’s Global Electric Mobility Readiness Index29.9.2022 14:52:00 CEST | Press release
Arthur D. Little (ADL) has published the latest edition of its Global Electric Mobility Readiness Index – GEMRIX 2022 – which details how favourable different markets are around the world to electric vehicle (EV) adoption. One of its key findings is that the country most ready for widespread EV uptake is Norway. GEMRIX 2022 has been produced to assist EV decision makers and track global EV uptake.
