Electric cars: 10 EU countries do not have a single charging point per 100km of road

Brussels, 9 September 2021 – There is a serious lack of electric charging points along the road networks in most EU member states, according to new data from the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA).

The findings show that 10 countries do not even have one charger for every 100 kilometre of key roads*. All of these countries also have an electric car market share of less than 3% (except Hungary). 18 EU member states have under 5 charging points per 100km of road, with just four possessing more than 10 chargers for each 100km of streets.

As part of its Fit for 55 climate package published in July, the European Commission proposed that by 2030 CO2 emissions from new cars should be 55% less than 2021 levels – up from the 37.5% target for 2030 set only three years ago. European automakers will have to bring millions of electrically-chargeable cars to the market over the next years to meet this challenging new target.

“Consumers will not be able to make the switch to zero-emission vehicles if there are not enough charging and refuelling stations along the roads where they drive,” cautioned ACEA Director General, Eric-Mark Huitema.

“For instance, if citizens of Greece, Lithuania, Poland and Romania still have to travel 200km or more to find a charger, we cannot expect them to be willing to buy an electric car,” explained Huitema.

“Massive progress on infrastructure deployment will have to be made across the EU in a very short timeframe. The advances made in a few Western European countries are encouraging, but should not distract us from the dire state of the charging network in other EU countries.”

Indeed, the contrast between the Netherlands – the country with the most chargers (47.5 for each 100km of road) – and a vast country like Poland (eight times bigger, but only one charging point for every 250km) is striking.

Huitema: “Unfortunately, the proposal for an Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Regulation – also a component of the Fit for 55 package – is out of sync with the Commission’s ambitions for the CO2 targets. While we appreciate the introduction of much-needed binding targets for charging and refuelling stations in each member state, they will need to be strengthened significantly if we want to meet our climate goals.”

ACEA is therefore calling on the European Parliament and the Council to grasp this opportunity to put the right conditions for e-mobility in place during the upcoming negotiations on Fit for 55.

在今年7月发布的“Fit for 55”气候计划中,欧盟委员会提出,到2030年,新车的二氧化碳排放量应比2021年的水平低55%,高于仅仅三年前设定的2030年37.5%的目标。未来几年,欧洲汽车制造商将不得不向市场推出数百万辆电动汽车,以实现这一具有挑战性的新目标。
ACEA总干事埃里克-马克·惠特马(Eric-Mark Huitema)警告说:“如果沿途没有足够的充电站和加油站,消费者将无法转向零排放汽车。”
Huitema:“不幸的是,替代燃料基础设施法规的提议——也是Fit for 55计划的一个组成部分——与欧盟委员会的二氧化碳目标不同步。虽然我们赞赏为每个成员国的充电站和加油站引入急需的约束性目标,但如果我们想要实现气候目标,这些目标需要得到显著加强。”
因此,ACEA呼吁欧洲议会和理事会抓住这个机会,在即将举行的Fit for 55谈判期间为电动汽车创造合适的条件。
