Brussels, 1 July 2021 – The Forum for Mobility & Society (FMS) is thrilled to announce ChargePoint and Toyota Motor Europe as its newest members. The new members increase the FMS diversity, further asserting the network as an important reference in the mobility sector in the EU.
ChargePoint is the leading electric vehicle (EV) charging network in the world. With more than 112.000 public and semi-public commercial charging spots, and thousands of customers, ChargePoint is the only charging technology company on the market that designs, develops, and manufactures hardware and software solutions across every use case.
Toyota is one of the world’s largest and best-known vehicle manufacturers. Toyota Motor Europe’s activities include manufacturing plants, logistics hubs, sales and marketing businesses, R&D, training and design centres, a world-class motorsports operation, and thousands of local retailers.
Christelle Verstraeten, ChargePoint Senior Director EU Policy, commented: ‘’ChargePoint is very enthusiastic to join the Forum for Motility and Society, and to contribute to the debate on new mobility solutions. It is a crucial time for implementing new and better ways of transportation in Europe, from the needs of new EV drivers to the implementations of modern technologies, but also to increase the share of the transport sector taking the decarbonization path. The Forum is a key platform to engage with to develop an inclusive approach with multiple stakeholders across the industry”.
Didier Stevens, Senior Manager, European & Government Affairs, Toyota Motor Europe, stated: “Toyota Motor Europe is very pleased to join the Forum for Mobility and Society. A green transition is taking place in the transport and mobility sector, and new technologies and policies are needed to realise carbon neutrality. Not to miss this overall goal, it is essential to discuss and agree how all these can go together. It is therefore important to exchange views with all relevant stakeholders, especially Members of the European Parliament, representatives from the European Commission, industry experts, NGOs, consumers, and society at large. “
