16.6 million electric passenger cars by 2030

In 2021, the German government set itself the goal of making Germany the leading market for electric mobility with 15 million electric cars by 2030. Establishing charging infrastructure ahead of time is a key success factor here, as is data-based demand planning. The “Manufacturer survey of electric passenger cars: market development and technology trends” (“Herstellerbefragung E-Pkw: Marktentwicklung und Technologietrends”) factsheet published today by NOW GmbH provides essential assessments and forecasts for this planning.

FlächenCHECK: The path from property sites to the FlächenTOOL

By providing these areas, they support the expansion of the charging infrastructure in Germany and help electric mobility as a whole to succeed.
