E-Mobility in the Fast Lane

Power2Drive Europe Exhibition Newspaper Issue 01 2021

Electric vehicles and environmentally friendlier driving are gathering momentum all across Europe – especially in the largest mobility markets of Germany, Norway, the Netherlands and Sweden. Compared to last year, the number of newly registered electric passenger cars in the EU has gone up by more than half in 2020.

PHEV and BEV achieved a market share of just over 12 percent of all new vehicle registrations – of which BEVs accounted for 55 percent (726,000). According to the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA), a record 43,671 electric vehicles were registered in the country in December 2020 alone. The European electric vehicle factbook 2019/2020 reports that every fourth car in Norway is electric.

Progress is also being made in the expansion of charging infrastructure. Automobile manufacturers, municipal utilities, fuel station operators and other companies and stakeholders from various industries are all investing in charging stations for electric vehicles. If Europe wants to achieve the targets of its Environment Action Programme 2030, it will need to successfully transition away from oil-based fuels. For this reason, and because more efficient e-mobility is increasingly becoming the norm, many municipal enterprises are electrifying their bus fleets, and companies and car sharing organizations are electrifying their vehicle fleets as well. You can learn everything you need to know about current developments, the latest ideas and the most important trends at Power2Drive Europe, the leading exhibition for e-mobility in the renewable energy system.
