Poland pins hopes on electric vehicle future

PA’s global head of manufacturing, Tim Lawrence, is quoted in an article on Polish electromobility in the Financial Times, in a special report on the future of the car in Europe.

The article looks at the issue of Poland’s unlikely to become the electric driver’s destination of choice due to the publically available charging stations – 324 compared to 7,000 in the UK. Poland also lags behind in terms of electric vehicle sales.

The article goes on to say that although there is a lack of consumer interest, the Polish government is keen on making electromobility a key part of its agenda with the aim of getting 1 million electric vehicles on Polish roads by 2025.

Tim explains that one of the potential issues with the uptake of electric vehicles in Poland is that the country does not offer big incentives for electric car users. He believes that this might post the biggest threat to Poland’s electromobility ambitions.

Tim goes on to say: “The markets that have been the most successful with electric vehicles have been driven by incentivisation from government, both for manufacturers and consumers.”
