E-mobility concept of Szeged

Cities around the world face many challenges: climate change, ensuring clean and healthy living environments, and affordable and secure energy are pressing issues everywhere. Some of these problems arise in the area of transport; e-mobility is emerging as one of the solutions to these problems.

The City of Szeged is committed to sustainable mobility; its persistent work in the field of clean transport has been recognised by the European Commission with the CIVITAS Legacy Award (2018). This is why, in addition to promoting sustainable transport modes, it has decided to develop the E-mobility concept of Szeged.

It is important that the new solutions serve the strategic goals of the city and therefore the concept was developed in line with the existing plans of Szeged, in particular the Sustainable Urban Development Strategy (FVS) and the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP). Its focus is primarily on mobility by fully electric vehicles.

The concept developed by Mobilissimus provides an overview of the concept of e-mobility, its impacts and trends in Europe and Hungary. It presents the e-mobility landscape of Szeged, covering the modal split and the following sectors: micromobility (shared and individual), public transport, municipal and public service vehicles, passenger car transport; including infrastructure, vehicle fleet, regulatory and management tools.

In line with European, national and city policies, it sets out a vision for e-mobility in Szeged, which includes:

  • stopping the increase of the share of private motorised transport;
  • fully electric local public transport;
  • gradual electrification the public service vehicle fleet;
  • encouraging the uptake of private electric vehicles in combination with national programmes.

To achieve this, it proposes 10 intervention areas:

  1. Development of micromobility infrastructure
  2. Promoting the use of e-scooters and e-bikes
  3. Modernisation of electric public transport infrastructure
  4. Modernisation of the electric public transport fleet
  5. Electrification of the municipal and public service vehicle fleet
  6. Differentiated expansion of the public charging network
  7. Promotion of e-car sharing
  8. Encouraging the electrification of company fleets
  9. Supporting e-mobility measures in workplaces and institutions
  10. Pilot environment for testing e-mobility solutions


The e-mobility concept of Szeged was adopted by the General Assembly of the City of Szeged on 17 November 2023. The concept is available HERE (in Hungarian).
