our source is not the first time emphasizes that the time of cars with internal combustion engines are numbered. But this time we not only learned, but also made a schedule of disappearance from road vehicles with internal combustion engines. And if you think that this trend will not touch Ukraine, you are mistaken.The conventional wisdom is that the craze for electric vehicles is observed only in Europe, denied the news of… Kazakhstan. It turns out that there is also caring for the environment. President Nazarbayev said that in the largest cities of Kazakhstan – Almaty and Astana will soon be driving only electric cars. This will build 500 fast charging stations, and buyers of electric cars will lift in $5,000 and concessional lending of the purchase. As a bonus – the opportunity to ride electric cars on the lanes for public transport and free Parking.
Almost everything in Norway. Only there (in Norway) of these benefits already canceled. Apparently believe that the purchase of the electric Vikings is no longer necessary to stimulate.
Although, in Germany, even the issuance of up to 7 thousand euros with the purchase of the electric vehicle – has not worked. And the German automotive electrification program, in fact, failed. However, plans to fully transition to environmentally friendly modes of transport, neither Germany nor the EU does not refuse.
Germany was unable to transplant the citizens to electric vehicles: instead of 1 million Germans bought only 7 thousand such cars
So the European press writes about the surge of interest in electric vehicles in 2017. last year in the EU was sold 126 000 EV. And it is projected that this year their sales will increase to 200 000 units it’s hard To believe, but back in 2010 in the EU was only 700 cars.
Interestingly, the share of the six member States of the EU accounted for almost 90% of all electric car sales. This – Germany, Denmark, France, UK, Netherlands and Sweden. This list is not Norway. This country officially is not a member of the EU, but to date, the electrification of vehicles has reached 52%!
In 2017 the best-selling electric vehicles in the EU were the Renault Zoe, then the Nissan Leaf, Tesla Model S and BMW i3. In 2017 the cost of the batteries has decreased by 24% to $209/KWh. It is expected that by 2025 prices will fall below $100/KWh. Therefore, experts predict that by 2020, EV sales in the EU reached 600 000 And by 2022 – million.
That looks like the plan of refusal of cars with internal combustion engines today:
Paris intends to give up diesel cars
The Dutch government stated that in 2030 the country will be allowed to sell cars with zero emissions.
India plans to completely abandon cars with internal combustion engines by 2030.
This year Paris intend to abandon petrol cars.
In Madrid and Mexico city will be forbidden to enter any vehicles with diesel engines.
At the initiative of the German “green” in Germany will be prohibited from registering new vehicles with any internal combustion engines.
The UK government announced plans to ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars.
In California, introduced the bill on January 1, 2040, prohibits sale in state of new cars equipped with a gasoline or diesel engine.
Member countries ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle, cars with zero emissions into the atmosphere) to completely ban cars with traditional internal combustion engines (ice). Among the members of the ZEV – Germany, Britain, the Netherlands and Norway, the canadian region of Quebec and 8 U.S. States (California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, new York, Oregon, Rhode island and Vermont). In these States, and the States are completely banned the sale of petrol and diesel engines.
And what about the Ukraine? Just recently, the Lviv city Council announced that by 2025, 20% of all vehicles will be electric.
The lions announced that by 2025, 20% of the total transport in the city will be electric cars
In Lviv made his statement out of the blue. Today is the only Ukrainian city, which experts Renault found fit for mass exploitation of electric cars. There is an adequate number of relevant European standards charging stations for EV. Although, today only 90 80 electric and hybrid vehicles. In the public domain is 16 charging stations for electric vehicles. 23 charging stations are operated on a commercial basis.
Renault checked charging stations for electric vehicles in Ukraine. Results
Incidentally, the share of electric cars, which are going to achieve in Lviv by the year 2025 corresponds to about 2015 in the European plan of electrification. And in the same Norway in 2015 to 22.5% of all vehicles were either pure electric or hybrid. That is, when the backlog of Ukraine from EU countries for the electrification of the vehicle fleet by about 10 years, our country can (theoretically) to abandon the sale of cars with internal combustion engines around 2050. By the way, according to our source, this year Renault will begin we have mass marketing of electric ZOE and Kangoo.
Objectively, prevent the European plan for the electrification to be implemented, can a deficiency of minerals needed for manufacturing batteries. As well as the absence in Europe (yet) the necessary production capacity to these batteries to do. It is possible that it will become for Ukraine a chance not only to catch up with the EU, but also to help Europe with electrification of transport.
European plan for the transition to electric vehicles may be under threat. Ukraine has a chance to help Europe
