Greek island lays ambitious plans to become super sustainable — but it’s just a drop in the Aegean Sea

Greece is known for its beautiful beaches, its breathtaking sunsets, and its fascinating history, but sure not for its EV infrastructure. Well, because there isn’t much.

But that’s about to change. Astypalea, a small picturesque island in the Aegean Sea, is set to become the country’s first smart sustainable island.

A few days ago, the first electric vehicles, including the first fully electric police car in Greece, were launched on the island in the presence of Greek prime minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Volkswagen‘s CEO Herbert Diess.
