ACEA study: enormous differences in EU charging infrastructure-charging

According to new data from the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA), it lacks highways in most EU Member States, fast and federal roads, sometimes massive on charging stations for electric cars. The results show that in ten countries on average less than a charging point per 100 kilometers of road is installed. In nine of these countries, electric cars have a market share of less than three percent. 18 EU Member States have less than five charging stations per 100 km street. And only in four EU countries more than 10 charging points per 100 km are built.

As part of its FIT FOR 55 climate package published in July, the European Commission suggested that CO2 emissions from new cars should be 55 percent below the level of 2021 by 2030. European car manufacturers will have to bring millions of electric cars to market over the next few years to achieve this challenging goal. And these cars should also be publicly loaded on larger routes.

“Consumers will not be able to change to emission-free vehicles if there are not enough charging options along the streets they drive,” warns Acea-General Director Eric-Mark Huiteema. “For example, if citizens of Greece, Lithuania, Poland and Romania have to travel 200 km or more to find a charging station, we can not expect them to buy an electric car,” he explains.

The contrast between the individual EU countries is enormous: in the Netherlands – the country with most charging points – 47.5 charging options per 100 km of road are installed. Poland, from the area eight times larger, has only a charging station per 250 km. In Greece and Lithuania, 500 kilometers of road even only one charging point can be found. Germany lies with 19.4 charging points per 100 km in the EU-wide rank three, Austria is at 6.1 charging points in second place.

“Unfortunately, the proposal for an infrastructure ordinance for alternative fuels – also part of the FIT FOR 55 package – is not consistent with the Commission’s ambitions for the CO2 goals”, criticized Huiteema. “Basically, we welcome the introduction of urgently needed binding targets for charging infrastructure in each Member State. However, they have to be raised significantly if we want to achieve our climate goals.”

The ACEA therefore calls on the European Parliament and the Council of the EU to take this opportunity to create the correct conditions for electromobility for the upcoming negotiations on Fit for 55.

  1. For the fact that here is shocked here, our charging infrastructure is not so bad. And she will feel better daily. To expand in other countries, I do not worry, the market will regulate.

  2. Especially in Croatia (3000km round trip within HR), below Split, here is dead pants, the SUC would not be in Split we would have to fight with 3kW.
    Above Zadar, it was still reasonably 50kW at the highway, on and to 22kW withinorts) is not the hammer, mostly even 2 stations and thus more advanced than in at.

  3. Where is Norway on this list?
    Well, Switzerland is not in the EU &# 128578;
    otherwise it would have been a few places down for the “Carutterland”.
    I would find the numbers without Tesla supercharger.
    Only with ionity Germany would probably find itself still below in the list.
    Listen to self-determination, take the finger out of the a … and just give it a lot of electricity !!!
