ADAC survey shows: The frustrated e-car driver the most-electric car

The quick charging infrastructure for electric cars has been massively expanded in recent years. However, almost 40 percent of electric car drivers are not particularly satisfied with the charging situation on long distances. This results in a current survey by the ADAC among 400 electric car drivers.

Among other things, the respondents would like a further expansion of the charging infrastructure, a simplification of the processes, more reliable charging stations as well as cheaper prices and faster charging.However, only a few electric car drivers (23 percent). However, 27 percent of the respondents do not find the prices per charging and even fear that the shop will become even more expensive in the future. Nevertheless, the vast majority of electric car owners do not want to switch to a burner again, as ADAC spokeswoman Katharina Luca: “The good thing: Only a quarter of electric car drivers can imagine returning to a conventional burner with increasing prices."

Payment processes for refueling e-cars in need of improvement

In addition, there is a need for improvement in the handling of the payment processes: AD-HOC figures with common giro, debit or credit cards via card reader would make the payment process easier for 67 percent. However, new charging stations only have to be equipped with reading devices for debit and credit cards from mid-2023.Users as well as the ADAC also see the pricing on the quick charging stations-Luca explains: “Electric car drivers can often not recognize which prices are actually billed by charging stations, and sometimes the prices for the ad hoc shop are twice as high as the one for Contract customer."

Majority is for a "blocking fee" of charging stations

According to the ADAC survey, only 38 percent of the respondents consider the information provided by the ad hoc shop to be sufficient. A special annoyance for many electric car drivers: vehicles that do not free the column again after the loading process has been completed. In the survey, almost three quarters stated that a blocking fee advocated when electric cars, especially on long distances, occupy the loading area beyond the store.

  1. Market economy in FRG
    After 16 years of CDUCSU there is no market economy in D (see mask creation). … Otherwise, electricity sellers should be interested in electricity cars? Lobby does the rest. "value""Creation""Chain"

  2. well then !
    Let’s wait and see what is moving in this area in the near future. If the number of e-drivers who want to load on the go will increase significantly, it will be curious to see how this is in "Everyday charging" represents. By the way, you can do that as a "wasted lifetime" classify depending on the pers. Point of view…………..

  3. Hopefully our future one also reads…
    FDP Transport Minister the ADAC study or at least this article. Then he knows what is important: Simply design the loading and payment process of e-cars as with Tesla. He just has to enforce it across Europe. This is certainly not that easy, but if you can prevail over the Greens and the SPD, you can do it at the European level.

  4. Results of the survey are more differentiated
    … as shown here. 2 groups E car drivers were interviewed: 400 non -tesal drivers & as a comparison 100 Teslafahrer. The former rightly complain 3 problems on quick charging stations in overland journeys: a lack of price transparency, no EC and credit card payment & charging column blocker. All three problems do not know Teslafahrer. Price is known (fair 40 cents/kwh), you no longer need a card, everything goes through charging cables/autoelectronics & there are always approx. 7 charging stations per supercharger. That is why 8 out of 10 respondents also say Teslafahrers: no problem. Among the e-car drivers who only the general. Fast veers are available, it is 4 out of 10. 6 out of 10 are also "fundamentally satisfied" here. 75% never want to go back to V, even if electricity price increases. Conclusion: E convinced!

  5. Alternating stations?
    There will not be! why? Quite simply, there is a brand new electric car with a battery to the station. Battery that are just as brand new, have 8 years of guarantee and will be replaced by what is replaced by what? Battery with an unknown age, unknown number of charging cycles, as often stressed by fast charging processes. You give a brand new with a full guarantee and get the famous cat in the sack. No one will take this risk unless you already have old batteries with a correspondingly low performance data!

  6. Where is the problem?
    Just buy any Tesla! No charging problems, your own charging stations across Europe. Loading time? 10 seconds, 5 seconds in, 5 seconds out. No cash register, you pay through the app. In between toilet, eating or drinking coffee, or walking with dogs. Everything great!

  7. Well
    If the auto industry woke up and agreed on a scalable, non -flammable, quickly changeable battery standard, a large part of the problems would already be solved. The main problem is the long loading time. Could be remedied by changing stations. Incidentally, sustainability and recyclability would also benefit from change batteries. That shouldn’t mean that you can load the car conventionally. But if it has to go quickly, z.B. Long distance, then alternating stations are much better to handle than 100 charging points at the rest area. However, this does not work with the car manufacturers designed for profit maximization and shareholder satisfaction.

  8. Again for you:
    Exchange stations do not work – except in China – from various reasons (S. Comment from Vogel Peter). Several attempts have already failed. Since a large part of the e-car drivers are short-distance routes, they pull their own charging station (which for approx. 50% is possible) before. The other half will be able to load when shopping (preferably with a system like with Tesla).
