We’re talking more and more about the new electric cars of the future and about the energy transition: that’s what we need to be able to travel on the road, and not just, with the least “impact” possible for the environment, little pollution or – better yet – nothing, and protect the air that we breathe and the planet.
We all know the consequences of pollution and climate change so far, but it’s also true that they still exist today Lots of limitations related to the world of electric cars. First of all, the list of prices for zero-emissions cars, it is still not very competitive, and even too high for the majority of Italians (exhausted even by expensive life and endless gasoline) and European motorists. But that’s not all, even the lack of charging stations evenly distributed throughout the peninsula negatively affects the spread of electric cars, Despite the new incentives which – as we have seen in the last days – was given in the last decree. Italy is still lagging behind in this area, as we now know, but the alarm that ACEA is sounding today points to the whole of Europe.
Blocked Electric Cars in Europe: What’s Happening
A new alarm issued by the European Association of Automobile Manufacturers: There is a double problem associated with the spread of electric cars on the old continent. On the one hand, ACEA asks politicians Expand the network of chargers Electric cars across the country, on the other hand, are also concerned about whether it is necessary Fill in the huge void It is among the countries of the European Union with the highest and lowest number of charging stations per 100 kilometers of the road.
In detail, a few days after the European Parliament gave its opinion (by voting) on the regulation of alternative fuel infrastructures (AFIR), the association asked politicians: “If we want to persuade the citizens of all of Europe to switch to electric mobility in the next decade, charge these cars It should be as easy as refueling today. People shouldn’t have to travel miles to find a charger, nor should they have to wait years to charge their car,” said ACEA General Manager Sigrid de Vries.
And this is not all because, as might be expected, in most countries that are part of Europe, not only are there very few charging points for electric cars on the road, but Not all of them allow fast charging. And in 2022 it seems almost unacceptable, especially given the EU laws he wants Banning combustion vehicles in not many years. There is a long way to go. Six countries today have only one pole every 100 kilometers, 17 other countries have less than five and the last 5 countries have more than 10: the gap is huge.
The situation in some European countries
To give an example (the same as ANSA does) we can say that in the Netherlands today there is a “power splitter” for electric cars every 1.5 km. And to realize the huge gap between one country and another, Poland instead – which by the way is at least 8 times larger – has only one charging station every 150 kilometers. Like we said, there is another issue with fast charging Because plants with a capacity of more than 22 kW throughout European territory are a very small fraction: one in seven.
