In 2017 there were about 2,500 new electric cars registered in Italy.
The number of new electric cars is growing, and it has doubled since 2016, but still far from countries ranked first in the European list for the greater diffusion of eco-drive vehicles: Norway, Germany, France, Belgium, Sweden.
Talking about incentives, more than at national level, where there are still shortages, it is in Europe that the topic of electric transport is increasingly discussed: the European Parliament, as approved at the beginning of 2018, decided that by the end of 2022 in Europe 90% of refueling services along the major trans-European highways will have to have a high-power charging point for electric vehicles.
These initiatives are certainly more relevant if added to the incentives that are closer to the people’s everyday lives. The best example for now is the formula taken from the top European player, Norway, which had almost 34,000 new vehicles registered in 2017. Their policy aims to substitute the entire automotive market by electric vehicles, thanks to incentives at the time of purchase, free public changing points, to create synergy between state policies and private investments.
