Perhaps when you read the title you think – wait a minute… I think there are still more ‘normal’ cars than electric variants on this planet. And that’s right.
But where we wrote in our blog last month about a look into the future when it comes to electric driving, that future has unmistakably started.
In our blog today we therefore explain in a more specific way what the advantages are and which developments are the basis of the strong growth in electric. Some familiar, some newer.
Although we are not yet talking about the offer within now and 3-5 years, we see in all lines and developments of the suppliers and notice that they are getting ready for an electric future.
Not only has the number of models in electric or hybrid variants grown at a rapid pace for the car industry. We also see a clear line in future plans and brand developments: more models, more diversity (ie electric in all segments) and a lot of attention (read .. budget) for further developments in new models.
This also means that you are increasingly stimulated in the showrooms by the offer to look at electric alternatives. We do not see the petrol car completely disappear within 5 years, but the trend has been set.
Guidelines and Requirements
Here we zoom in a little more on the diesel car. Because while diesel driving has been losing popularity for years, the ‘poorly scoring boy in the class’ in passenger transport is no longer welcome in an increasing number of places (such as city centers).
The figures are therefore clear – of the newly purchased passenger cars, hardly anyone opts for a diesel anymore. Simply because it is no longer interesting due to the costs and limitations.
Every now and then we hear the sounds that the nice boost that the government, among other things, has given to the electric driver with subsidies. An approaching motor vehicle tax, less tax advantage… that doesn’t help, does it?
However, there are still many tax benefits to driving an electric car. Lease companies also promote the choice for electrically active. The currently relentlessly high fuel prices are also doing well – many private motorists indicated in research at the beginning of this year that they were more open than ever to making the switch to electric.
This is also because the previously most important barriers (range and infrastructure for charging) are much less relevant. The network of charging points in the Netherlands and Europe is wider than ever and expanding daily. And with the strong developments that do not stop, the range of many models has greatly improved compared to previous versions.
Are you considering electric driving, are you going to drive electric or are you working on your company’s electric vehicle fleet? Or do you want to provide a charging point for visitors as a location?
