ACEA urges EU take action over car charging points. The association suggests the EU take action to increase investments needed for the construction of up to 14,000 units per week.
The European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) notes that the EU is currently only building under 2,000 units per week.
For example, it states that sales of electric cars incresed 18 percent during the past year. But public charging points only grew by 2.5 times in the same period.
ACEA supports the claim with a new cross-based industry research conducted by McKinsey.
ACEA’s press release says the new research suggests that the EU needs a boost in investment. This urgently needed increase will help build up to 6.8m charging points.
According to the study, the EU needs this boost in charging points to meet the targeted 55 percent CO2 reduction for passenger cars by 2030.
