Estonia to Have World's First Nation-Wide EV Infrastructure

The small Baltic nation of Estonia, a country of only 1.34-million inhabitants, will be getting its first EV charging station, a Terra 51 DC fast charging unit. One can find this fast charger at the Tallinn Innovation Center, and it’s the first of 200 chargers to be installed in multiple locations around the country.

Of the 200, 27 more will be built in Tallinn, 10 in the city of Tartu, 4 in Pärnu and 2 in Narva. All this means that Estonia, as a country, will be practically completely covered by charging points, thus making EVs a more-than-viable option for its inhabitants. This makes Estonia the world’s first country with a nation-wide infrastructure of EV chargers.

In order to stimulate the market, the Estonian government has purchased no fewer than 507 Mitsubishi iMiEVs for use in its own fleet. Factor in the generous tax incentives for EVs and Estonia seems set for an electrically-powered future. We hope all goes to plan and they set an example to the rest of the world and other nations will follow.
