In Europe, Germany is the most sceptical country about electric cars
13% of respondents in Germany said they believe that electric cars could outnumber conventional cars within the next ten years, according to an international survey commissioned by E.ON. In a press release, E.ON pointed out that Germany is the most sceptical country about the success of e-mobility.
According to the survey, Southern European countries are much more optimistic. In Turkey, 43% said that electric cars could outnumber conventional cars within the next ten years; while in Italy, it was 37%.
Central European countries are almost as pessimistic as Germany: only 15% of respondents in the Czech Republic and 14% of respondents in Hungary agreed that these cars could outnumber conventional cars in the next decade. “The results are surprising, especially since huge progress has been made in recent years with respect to charging infrastructure, product choice, range and prices of offered cars,” the company said.
