BMW CFO Nicolas Peter is calling for more charging stations for electric cars. If the expansion “continues as slowly as before”, the goal of one million charging stations by 2030 is unrealistic, he told “Münchner Merkur” (Friday). “Something has to happen here in Germany, but also in southern Europe, where the pace of expansion is much slower,” he said. “It’s not enough if Norway or the Netherlands have good infrastructure, the whole of Europe needs enough charging stations.”

The construction of a nationwide charging station infrastructure is considered one of the most important prerequisites for the success of electricity. Especially if not only garage owners, but also light parkers have to switch to e-cars, it is important to have enough possibilities for charging their cars. There are also charging stations on the road, which are useful for long journeys. In surveys, charging infrastructure is frequently cited as a barrier to purchasing an electric vehicle. The VDA has been warning for some time that the number of electric vehicles is growing faster than the number of charging stations. A large number of charging stations are also needed because charging electric vehicles takes much longer than filling up combustion engines. (dpa/eng)
