The plan will offer higher grants for small and cheap EVs while also ensuring that all newly-built residential and office buildings feature charging stations.

László Palkovics, minister for innovation and technology, says the plan comprises a range of measures which seek to reduce harmful emissions.

Part of the initiative includes a green bus programme to support the procurement of low- and zero-emission vehicles in public transport.
