Lack of infrastructure to charge electric vehicles in the European countries might slowdown sales of electric models and hybrid vehicles. Many countries around the world are increasing their infrastructure to support the transition that the automobile industry is undergoing these days. New automobile manufacturing companies have started developing automobile vehicles which operate based on electric fuel rather than opting on petrol/diesel. These vehicles require charging ports for charging their vehicles during the long journey. Even though many companies have developed their electric vehicle with a 400-mile range capability. Owners of electric vehicles still are in need of a public charging station to powerup their vehicles.
European Automobile Manufacturers Association (EAMA) has requested the European Commission to speed up their process of creating infrastructure plans to support the electric vehicles. It looks like there is a huge need for electric charging public stations in different parts of Europe. Sales of the electric and hybrid vehicles have gone through the roof in the recent rime where many customers prefer to get electric vehicles to prove their standard quality of living. European Union along with Britain have reported that they have sold 458,915 vehicles during the financial year 2019. It looks like these numbers are 110% higher than its 2017 figures.
Even though the number of charging ports in the country grew up to 55%, there is a huge demand for many other parts in the countries. Electric car owners are facing a problem with charging their vehicles while travelling to distant places. These products are said to consume less renewal energy for travelling from point A to B. Along with the commercial vehicles, a lot more heavy-duty electric vehicles are also expected to get joining in the upcoming days. Director-General of ACEA, Eric-Mark Huitema has expressed that the lack of such high-quality infrastructure in European countries might push the people preferring for petrol vehicles over the electric vehicle. This move might increase the sales of emission vehicles in the upcoming years.
Meanwhile, during the time of pandemic sales of electric cars have increased with a huge margin, pushing the cars with petrol combustible engines. Its been tough market for the automobile manufacturing companies who were developing petrol combustible engine vehicles. government has increased their norms over the emission which has restricted the people for opting for petrol engine vehicles. Almost every country in the world has been concentrating on reducing pollution. Encouraging electric and hybrid model cars can help them reduce pollution by using renewable energy for powering up these vehicles.
As a part of the EU clean transport strategy, countries will be boosting their deployment of EU-wide charging infrastructure. These charging stations come with the multi-purpose station where the electric vehicles can charge their vehicles within a shorter span of time. It looks like Tesla will be entering the European market for setting up these high capacity charging station where they can charge multiple vehicles at the same point of time. It looks like the EU will be extending their support to set up one million public recharging and refuelling stations as a part pf their low-emission strategy. It’s expected that by 2023, 13 million low-emission electric vehicles will be delivered to its customers. Its a must move for these organisation in setting up basic features to support the initiative for eco-friendly culture.
