Heads were turned at the eCarExpo in Gothenburg — Sweden’s biggest electric car show — when the visitors saw 100-year-old tram. Clearly an odd bird in the flock of futuristic cars, but Västtrafik was there to make a point. The stunt was carried out to highlight mass transit as the most sustainable travel option, but also to inform about Västtrafik’s accelerating commitment to electrification. By next year, 230 electric buses will be set in traffic, giving Gothenburg the biggest fleet of electric buses in Northern Europe. And within 10 years, the goal is for all city traffic to be fully electric.
