The 38th International Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exposition

SWEDEN - 2025 hosted country

Sweden is home to one of the most advanced and vibrant clusters in the world for electromobility and offers numerous opportunities for sustainable manufacturing, auto testing and incubation of new ideas.

Swedish car and truck manufacturers, technology startups and researchers are at the forefront of co-creating smart transport solutions that will pave the way for carbon-free flow of people and goods.
The country’s Smart Transport ecosystem is driving progress in electrification and future mobility, bringing together global players such as Volvo Cars and Volvo Group, Scania, Bombardier, and Ericsson with leading researchers and tech innovators including Einride, Heart Aerospace and Polestar, to mention just a few key players.

Sweden’s rapid advances in electrification, alternative fuels, self-driving vehicles, connectivity, and platforms for shared mobility provide a powerful springboard for change. All backed up by world class know-how in digitalisation, automotive manufacturing, testing and road safety.



The proportion of newly registered electric cars increased from 45 % in 2021 to 56 percent in 2022.


In October 2023 the rechargeable vehicles made up 11% of the total number of passenger cars. An increase of 36% in the last 12 months.


The proportion of newly registered light electric trucks also increased from 7.5 % in 2021 to 14.5 percent in 2022.

Sweden has roughly 4,600 public charging stations and over 32,000 charging points, of which approx. 3,000 with fast charging.

Gothenburg – leading the way in electro mobility

The Gothenburg region is one of the world’s most knowledge-intensive regions per capita, especially when it comes to automotive development and future electromobility solutions.
With a focus on innovation, sustainability and collaboration, Gothenburg has established itself as one of Europe's most dynamic electromobility clusters. The region's automotive cluster is world leading in safety, electrification, autonomous technology and connected vehicles.

Gothenburg holds the entire value chain in electromobility and is home to innovative companies, academic and research institutions, unique test environments and demonstration projects, making it an ideal place to showcase the latest products and developments in electro mobility.

Progressive brands including Volvo Cars, the Volvo Group, Polestar, Einride, Heart Aerospace, Stena Line, CEVT and NovoEnergy are headquartered or carrying out research and development here. In addition, Gothenburg and western Sweden have a fast-growing battery ecosystem, which in the coming years will feature, among other things, two battery gigafactories.

Gothenburg strongly focuses on reducing emissions as well as adopting and promoting clean transport solutions. 99% of public transport in the county runs on renewable energy and the city’s transport system will be entirely fossil free by 2030. The city has been selected as one of EUs 100 climate-neutral cities in 2030 and named the world’s most sustainable destination seven times.

Gothenburg's emphasis on environmental initiatives, such as Gothenburg Green City Zone and sustainable urban planning, provides the perfect backdrop for displaying solutions for urban mobility, safety, and sustainable materials.

Welcome to Gothenburg - the Nordic capital of getting things done!
