The Lithuanian government plans to build 6,000 new charging stations for electric vehicles by 2030, but by 2025 there will be about 1,200. The country's Ministry of Transport has allocated about 90 million euros to the budget. At the same time, free charging is coming to an end.

Public charging on Lithuanian motorways is currently free thanks to EU funding. However, free charging will end by 2023 after a planned five years. The Department of Transportation said it considers five years to be sufficient time to promote electric vehicles and has made a decision together with stakeholders.

After consulting with businesses, it was decided that there was no need to maintain such a publicly funded incentive for electric vehicles because it creates a large and unpleasant competitive effect on private business

Especially since Lithuania expects private operators to install about 54,000 charging stations by 2030 in addition to the announced stations.

The recently budgeted 6,000 charging stations have yet to be more precisely defined. So far, the ministry has not revealed any details regarding positioning, charger types, or capacity.
