Electromobility study: Spain is one of the worst prepared countries

The truth is that the study does not announce anything that we do not know or live in our flesh, but it is one more example of the much work that remains to be done to achieve a correct implementation of the electric car. PwC, an important global consulting company, has presented a report analyzing the electricity market of the seven main markets of the European Union. The report makes it clear that Spain is one of the worst prepared countries for electromobilityfailing in almost all areas of the study.

Although sales of electric cars continue to grow every month, the figures show a more than obvious delay if we take other countries around us as a reference. Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Norway and Spain have been the territories on which the study has focused. A diversity of territories that shows the many differences that exist, not only at a commercial level, but also at a political and infrastructure level.

The PwC study takes into account various parameters to draw conclusions: government incentives, infrastructure, supply and demand. In almost all the sections we receive a scandalous suspense, which takes us to the queue positions in terms of preparation and implementation of electric mobility. Joining us are our neighbors to the north, France, which achieves better overall ratings, and Italy, which achieves ratings similar to ours.

The purchase price continues to stand out as the great impediment to making the leap to electric mobility

It goes without saying that Norway has positioned itself prominently in the first position of the ranking with a final grade of 4.5 out of 5 possible points. Meanwhile, Spain has failed to obtain a certification of 2.3 points. Mainly the suspense is obtained by the low rating obtained in the infrastructure section, 1.3 points. Not much better are the notes for supply and demand, slightly exceeding two points. The only section where we receive a pass is in terms of government incentives, where Spain manages to scratch 3.8 points out of five possible.

Within the same study it is determined that 55% of electric buyers took advantage of the numerous incentives offered by European governments, obtaining an approximate bonus of 13% of the value of the vehicle. Despite this good news, 77% of buyers acknowledge that without the incentives they would also have made the purchase. there is still one a good percentage of skeptical Europeans, 31% of drivers, who do not see the move to electric at all clearly. The study determines that these would have a 60% lower income than the current owners, which highlights the vital importance of the sale price.

Regarding purchasing infrastructure, the analysis makes it clear that 57% of electric car consumers opted for the installation of a domestic charging point. To this must be added 14% who purchased the electrical outlet separately from the vehicle. Despite the high percentage, the remarkable note is that 29% of buyers did not choose to include any recharging solution. Spain has a long way to go, almost more than any other country in Europe, but above all the price factor is clear when making the leap to electromobility.
