Attention eMobility sector: The EVS38 will be held in Sweden in June 2025

Gothenburg will host the global e-mobility event EVS38 from 15th to 18th June 2025. As the birthplace of brands like Volvo, Polestar, and Heart Aerospace, the city is pivotal in a complete value chain for mobility and transportation.

The Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exhibition, EVS, is the leading global event for the transformation to electrification in all modes of transport.

The symposium brings together manufacturers, authorities, and researchers from all over the world, and is expected to attract over 10,000 visitors to Gothenburg in June 2025.

The EVS in Gothenburg is the first ever in Sweden, and it takes place as the transformation accelerates.

Global sales of electric cars (BEV and PHEV) rose on all continents in 2023, and will increase another 21 percent in 2024, according to Bloomberg, which also expects commercial EV sales to double this year.

Private and public investments in new technology and production units are heavy throughout Europe, supported by EU decarbonisation legislation such as Fit for 55.

At the same time, The European Commission estimates that Europe needs to invest an additional 92 billion euros in net zero technology until 2030.

This is one of the key messages before the European Parliament election in June this year.

“In this election year, we are reminded that although political push-backs exist, technology and the drive for decarbonisation are part of Europe’s DNA. Sweden is a prime example of this, where innovation and development is valued, supported, and prevalent”, says Maciej Mazur, President of the European Association for Electromobility (AVERE).

“In this sense, EVS38 is not merely a major event of the e-mobility sector, but also a clear signal that this is a transformation that is both necessary for the environment and the electric revolution,” he adds.

Gothenburg: A hotspot for innovation

Gothenburg is a hotspot for innovation and master of private-public collaboration.

Few other regions in the world can manifest such a comprehensive and progressive mobility value chain, gathered all in one place.

For instance, Volvo Cars and Volvo Group are currently both establishing gigafactories for battery production in the region.

Further, the port of Gothenburg is the largest in the Nordics, making the city the automotive and logistics capital of Scandinavia.

Last year, the European Commission selected it as a mentor city to lead Europe’s green transition.

The city is also a pioneer in sustainability and has been named the most sustainable destination according to the Global Destination Sustainability Index seven years in a row.

“We are proud to be hosting EVS38. Real life test beds and initiatives like Gothenburg Green City Zone, ElectriCity and the Tranzero initiative bring together our innovative industry to create emission- and fossil-free transport solutions in collaboration between the city, academia and institutes,” says Jonas Attenius, Mayor of Gothenburg.

“It is a big advantage compared to many other cities, making it easier to organize such a large and important conference as EVS,” he adds.

During EVS, the city will organize a series of events in collaboration with the industry and academia, with the goal of reaching out to and engaging the public.

EVS38 is organized by AVERE and hosted by the city of Gothenburg through Business Region Göteborg and Göteborg & Co.
