The Greek island of Chalki is at the center of an inventive project to transform the island into an area of sustainable, zero-emission mobility energy. Chalki’s green energy transition is being implemented with several partners with specialized knowledge such as Syngelidis Group, Citroën’s Greek importer, Vinci and Akuo Greece among others.
Following the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Greek Government, Citroën/Syngelidis Group, Vinci and Akuo Greece, work is underway to transform the island of Chalki into a zero-emission economy. Citroën and Syngelidis Group are offering a range of electric vehicles that will only use renewable energy. The aim is to make this progress available to all residents and businesses on the island.
Citroën said its belief is that “mobility should be available to everyone and showcases Citroën’s innovative and avant-garde approach.” To begin, Citroën is providing a fleet of six fully electric vehicles to the public authorities in Chalki, namely 2 Ami to the Police and Coast Guard respectively along with 2 ë-C4 and 1 ë-Spacetourer to the Municipality of Chalki and 1 ë-Jumpy will also be delivered to the Energy Community of Chalki. For 2 of those cars, there will be a free leasing for 48 months after which Citroen will buy back the cars and donate them to the Municipality of Chalki.

Citroën will also provide the opportunity to residents and businesses of the island, to acquire zero-emission electric vehicles at affordable prices, through so-called green and smart mobility options, from light quadricycle to passenger and commercial vehicles with free of charge use of all the technologies and connected applications which they incorporate. “People on the island will gain a significant improvement in their daily life with less noise, a better air quality, a cleaner environment, as well as lower energy costs,” claimed Citroën.
