THE ELVITEN PROJECT

ELVITEN demonstrates the usefulness of light electrified vehicles for urban transportation. Our focus is on bicycles, scooters, tricycles and quadricycles (EL-VS). We work for more innovative, more sustainable and more connected urban mobility in Europe.

The ADAC joins ELVITEN Regional Support Group in Berlin

The ADAC has joined the ELVITEN Regional Support Group of the demonstration site in Berlin.

ELVITEN, one of the EU research projects in which FIA Region I is involved, aims to improve mobility in six European cities by demonstrating a wide range of uses of Electric Light Vehicles (EL-Vs) and their contribution to urban mobility.

The ELVITEN Regional Support Groups comprise local stakeholders providing various support to the  ELVITEN project activities. Additionally, these organisation play a crucial role in the project dissemination through promoting activities and events using their communication channels.

Relevant stakeholders outside the ELVITEN consortium based in one of the six ELVITEN demonstration cities (Bari, Berlin, Genoa, Malaga, Trikala and Rome) have been invited to join. Present members for instance include electric vehicle manufacturers, fleet operators, road infrastructure operators, public authorities, electrical distribution system operators, service providers and mobility Clubs. The ADAC is the eightieth organisation in Italy, Germany, Greece and Spain having signed such a cooperation agreement to be part of an ELVITEN Regional Support Group. Members in Berlin involved include Yoove, LEVCON, EUREF Campus Berlin and the eMO Berlin Agency for Electromobility. Members in Malaga include the RACC.

Registration to the final event taking place on 21 October (both online and in Rome) are now open: you can register here.

FIA Region I is one of the 21 partners of the ELVITEN project, which seeks to make users more familiar with EL-V’s and encourage their use for both private transport and light urban delivery.

ELVITEN showcases its achievements at the Urban Mobility Days 2020

ELVITEN has made use of the Urban Mobility Days conference to present the main highlights of its three-year work. the Urban Mobility Days conference, organised by the European Commission from 29 September until 2 October, gathered policy-makers, academics, NGOs, local authorities, urban transport practitioners, urban planners to exchange ideas on emerging transport trends and technologies, as well as the latest developments on the sustainable urban mobility planning.

ELVITEN has taken the opportunity to showcase how it demonstrated how electric light vehicles (EL-Vs) can be used in urban areas and integrated into the existing transport network of six European cities. Presenter Evangelia Portouli, ELVITEN Coordinator gave examples how those new mobility concepts can successfully tackle the increasing challenge of transport and mobility systems decarbonisation, European cities need to integrate smart mobility solutions with renewable energy smart grid and energy storage systems, thus going beyond the electrification of vehicles.

After months of demonstrations on how Electric Light-Vehicles can be used in urban areas, and integrated into the existing transport network, the ELVITEN project is coming to an end.

Save the date for the final event which will take place on 21 October 2020. The event will be a hybrid event – you can join the event in Rome, or you can participate in the online event.

Volkswagen collaborated with Uber and launched an electric vehicle pilot in Berlin

Volkswagen, along with Uber, is launching a pilot project that will use electric vehicles with a sustainable taxi service called “Uber Green”. The e-Golf, a zero-emission alternative in the Volkswagen model range is now available in Berlin. The goal of this pilot project is to use a number of one-year-old e-Golf cars in the service. The objective is to reach a thousand and more in the upcoming months. The pilot project will fist run in Berlin, and will potentially expand to other European cities. Volkswagen had already been using the e-Golf successfully in its own car-sharing service We Share since 2018.

Holger B. Santel, Head of Sales and Marketing Germany for the Volkswagen Passenger Car brand, said: “Through our cooperation with Uber, we are helping to improve air quality in urban areas with our locally carbon-neutral electric vehicles”.

As part of its e-offensive, the Volkswagen brand is planning to offer electric cars in the major vehicle segments by 2022 and expects to produce up to 1.5 million e-cars in 2025.
