The Netherlands, Norway and Great Britain are currently the best countries prepared for electromobility in Europe. Germany ends up with Finland in the upper third. This is the conclusion of the new eV Readiness Index of LeasePlan.
The index is based on the 2019s numbers and four factors that result in the overall standings for each country: electric vehicle market (including plug-in hybrids), loading infrastructure, state incentives and know-how of lease plan on electromobility in each country. Germany reaches Germany together with Finland 24 points. The Netherlands and Norway come with 34 to the highest overall score, the last lights in the ranking are Poland and Slovakia with 11 points each.
Almost all countries in the index have improved compared to the previous year. This indicates increased readiness for electromobility throughout Europe, even if the individual countries implement these improvements differently. This is the reason why Germany could not quite hold the placement from the previous year and has slipped down a point. Other countries could score more than the previous year.
The overall willingness to readiness is due to the better availability of a public loading infrastructure. Europe-wide there was an increase in public charging stations by 73 percent. In Germany, the number of public charging points to 32.704 increased. And still good news: Germany has a very clear in the rapid loading possibilities with a total of 5040 charging points compared to the other countries.
5.7 percent of all newly authorized vehicles in Europe are electric. Between 2018 and 2019, the number of newly authorized electric cars rose averaging 60 percent. The countries with the highest increase are Luxembourg (+154 percent), Ireland (+127 percent) and the Netherlands (+120 percent).
“Political decision-makers need to act and continue to invest in the public charging infrastructure and create incentives for the introduction of electric vehicles until the electrification becomes a matter of course for all motorists.”- Roland Meyer, Managing Director of Leaseplan Germany
The more advantageous taxation for holder of electric cars has had a positive effect in many countries. On average, pay holder of e-cars 40 percent less taxes than holder of vehicles with internal combustion engine. In Europe, the number of approvals of electric cars rose on average by about 60 percent.
“Although our eV Readiness Index shows that electromobility becomes a realizable option in more and more countries, we still have a long way before us until all people can drive electric cars. Millions of Europeans live in countries where public charging infrastructure is still very insufficient or in which they pay more taxes than the holders of cars with fossil fuels. The transition to electromobility is one of the easiest things we can do all to fight climate change. Everyone should be able to afford to be environmentally consciously.”- Tex Gunning, CEO of LeasePlan
