Is the future for electric cars? How much the market has grown and what revolution awaits us //

Will electric cars really be the future? There has been talk of electric cars for some time, so much so that many motorists are already thinking that this type of power supply will be the future. Even the EU has repeatedly stated that it wants to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 90% by and by 2050 at the latest.

How is the electric car market doing? Realities that have been present for years in the car sector, among these we can find Finrent a reality dedicated to NLT in Italy, which confirms the ever-growing trend of buying or renting electric cars, both city and sports cars. According to experts in the car sector, at least in Europe, the first changes will be noticed from the year 2023. In fact, PHEV (plug in hybrid) and BEV (electric batteries) vehicles could be far superior to those with petrol and diesel. It is clear that before there is a final breakthrough, electric cars must be ready for a revolution. The real differences may be present in the year 2025, where both performance and financial savings can offset incinerators. The growth (starting from the year 2018) of electric cars has been remarkable. Here is a table where you can see the trend to date, resulting in years and registered units:

Year Sale of electric cars
2018 137, 486
2019 154,062
2020 119,544
2021 87,338
2022 97,771

The gradual increase is due to the improvement in supply. In fact, not only are there more electric cars today, but the charging time is also getting shorter and shorter. In the long run, electricity is likely to dominate the automotive sector. This is due not only to the ever-widening offerings in the market, but the lower prices and more powerful performance of these cars. The concessions that are slowly being proposed to encourage motorists to switch to electricity should not be underestimated. An example is the eco-bonus for cars, which provides an incentive for those who want to buy an electric car. On the basis of certain vehicles, the government has foreseen a very specific number of funds. By connecting to the official website, it will be possible to evaluate the available funds and those that are exhausted or running out. It is possible to note what has been said, based on the color assigned to funds:

● Residual Fund greater than 25% of the green background.
● Residual fund less than 25% of the fund and more than € 2000.00, yellow in color.
● Remaining fund less than € 2000.00 in red.

How electric cars are doing in Italy 2021 in Italy brought decent results in terms of sales of electric cars (given the difficulties given the limitations of Covid-19). In our beautiful country, 1,457,952 electric cars have been registered, of which 4.6% are BEV vehicles (67,542), compared to a share of 2.3% in 2020 and 0.5% in the year before, 2019. However – Although it may seem obvious – Italian motorists seem to prefer electric cars when costs are lower than other power supplies. As we have said, it may seem obvious in the light of lower costs, but especially in the automotive sector, cost is not the only factor being assessed. Apart from concessions and bonuses, electric cars can see their base price reduced already from the first decade, or from the year 2020 to 2030.

According to News Auto reporters, one concern that could affect the electric car sector for a long time is the power grid. 77% of the interviewees said that it is important where one can recharge their electric vehicles. 72% of them would travel long distances if there were several mains poles both in the main roads and on the highways. Another convenience that motorists interviewed by News Auto would like is to be able to make multiple charges in private homes. Some of them would also be willing to share the column to have it in their apartment.

Charging for electric cars: which are available Electric cars can be charged according to different types. Here are some of them on the list:

● AC charging in Europe: More and more three-phase units of 11 kW each are becoming very frequent. Furthermore, the built-in charger can be installed very easily thanks to its very small size, which allows a complete recharging of the batteries with 80 kWh.
● CSS recharging (combined recharging system): for direct current recharging, the standard on motorways is capable of reaching a maximum of 350 kW. In many urban environments, charging stations range from 50 to 100 kW.
● Fast charging stations: Although it is a solution that could be implemented in many (if not all) service areas on the Italian motorways, the investment to install them at the same time will be large.
