Action Strategy (Plan)

The APEV is aiming for ordinary citizens to be able to feasibly consider and purchase electric vehicles and drive them in towns within three years.

With the APEV taking a central role, we will form a collective of organizations, businesses and individuals who truly aspire to realize the EV/PHV/FCV business and aim for a system with the power to deliver.
