The Greek island of Astypalaia is experimenting to see if renewable energy can be used for transport.
German carmaker Volkswagen and the Greek government say if successful, it can help Europe revolutionise transport and reduce carbon emissions.
Volkswagen will sell people electric cars at factory prices, which the Greek government will further subsidise. Charging stations will be installed in the island’s parking lots.
The idea is to eventually make all transport electric and to create a system of mobility on demand, whereby people can book a ride on a publicly owned car or scooter, through a mobile phone app.
