Currently, 17 percent of Polish drivers are considering buying an electric car, compared to 12.4 percent a year ago, according to the “Electromobility Barometer 2018”, published by the Polish Alternative Fuels Association (PSPA).
The increase in interest in electric vehicles, however, does not translate into the number of electric cars sold in Poland. In the first quarter of this year, 69,998 electric vehicles were registered in the EU, which is over 1.7 percent of all passenger cars registered. The share of electric cars in the Polish automotive market in this period was just over 0.2 percent – eight times less than the EU average.
Electromobility Barometer is based on answers obtained from a representative group of Polish drivers who are realistically considering the purchase of a new vehicle in the next three years. The partners of PSPA in this project are ABB Polska, BZ WBK Leasing and Volkswagen Group Polska.
