Bayern accelerates expansion of electric car loading infrastructure-electric

Currently there are already good 150.000 electric cars on Bavarian roads – and the number of registrations is increasing rapidly. The rapid construction of a dense and reliable charging infrastructure is therefore crucial, according to the Bavarian Ministry of Transport in a recent statement. “Bayern already has more than 12.000 public charging points, more than any other federal state. Nevertheless, we are continuing to accelerate the development of the charging infrastructure wherever we can,” says Bavaria’s Minister of Transport, Kerstin Schreyer.

In view of the forecast number of registrations for e-cars, Bavaria will need around 70 by 2030.000 public charging points, with fast charging points in cities and on main routes being particularly important in the future. With the support of the Ministry of Construction and Transport, all managed rest areas have been equipped with fast chargers since 2017 – but further expansion is urgently needed. With the extensive procedural freedom in the construction of charging stations and with the commitment to amending the Home Ownership Act, Bavaria has created the building law foundations that charging points can be built quickly and that tenants and co-owners can also set up private charging points.

Even on public authorities, more than 800 charging points for service vehicles, which can also use employees and visitors. Another acceleration of the structure is urgently needed in view of the strongly rising registration numbers. Minister Schreyer: “Only if there are enough reliable and available charging options, more people will decide for an electric car. My Ministry will therefore continue to accelerate the construction of the charging options to public authorities and create 1500 charging points. This is a million euros available this year alone.”

The Construction and Ministry of Transport also offers suitable properties as a large property owner, especially with good transport links, the private sector to build charging infrastructure. Construction must also be made easier in publicly accessible parking lots and parking spaces. “We are pushing the development of charging points, especially with the state housing associations,” said Minister Schreyer. “In the inner cities, we are focusing on sufficient charging points in dialogue with the housing industry and the municipalities. In addition, we want to set up a round table with the charging station operators, the federal Autobahn GmbH, Tank & Rast and the municipal umbrella organizations in order to remove the remaining obstacles to sufficient rapid charging infrastructure on main traffic routes. We will also introduce an obligation to set up charging points when promoting Park & Ride facilities.”

  1. Personally, I don’t know of a single Park & Ride facility with charging points. That surprises me. Can’t make money with snoring shops? does anyone know?

  2. Prevent wall parks in Bavaria with the 10H rule and not leave any power lines for wind power from the north, but want to expand the electric car charging infrastructure – where is the green electricity supposed to come from??
    “Wash my fur, but don’t get me wet” is probably the motto of the CSU in the energy transition.

  3. Something else about BMW and e-cars.

    Out for BMW i3 already this year

    For a long time, the BMW i3 was the only electric car from a German manufacturer. Much praised, but it came far too early for consumers. Now he has to leave the field earlier than planned because the competition in this segment has meanwhile become much stronger. BMW will probably not have a replacement for the i3.

    … The reason is that the small electric car at the Leipzig plant has to make room for the conventionally powered 2 Series Active Tourer and the Mini Countryman, of which there will also be an electric version.


    … The smallest electric BMW in Europe will be the mid-range model i4 for just under 60.000 euros. With the E variant of the Mini Cooper, the group has at least one alternative model for i3 customers in its portfolio.

    There will be no inexpensive electric Isetta from BMW; the Microlino (L6e, 2 seats, 90 km/h and a range of up to 230 km) from a Swiss supplier will take over this task from around 12.500 euro.

  4. 1 million. for fast charging stations – wow. You can put about five for that. We will build 9 in Munich alone in 2022, (probably) without any public support.
