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 the second quarter of 2020, achieving a market share of 12 per cent of total registrations. Battery electric vehicles accounted for 55 per cent of this total (726,000).
Subsidies for electric vehicles are now widespread and are funded by federal, state, and city governments. To make the change easier for many drivers, they include subsidies for consumer purchases of EVs, subsidies for EV infrastructure, and other various side benefits to EV owners. The governments are promoting this subsidies for EVs as they reduce local air pollution, noise and carbon emissions, could use sustainable energy sources and also boost the rate of technological innovation and generate jobs. #ChargingTheFutureOfMobility
