We stand at the brink of an unprecedented evolution in the future of transport. In 2020, every 10th new passenger car sold in Europe was either a pure electric or a plug-in hybrid and landmark one million electric vehicles (EVs) were sold. This marked a decisive turning point in achieving 30%–40% EV sales volumes by 2030, putting Europe’s carbon-reduction targets within reach.
Environmental benefits are the ultimate reward, but there are prizes to be won for the first and fastest movers in the ecosystem that underpins e-mobility. Benefits would result both from delivering and accelerating the transition, reducing emissions, cutting costs of EV ownership and providing a much-improved EV-user experience.

There are 5 key enablers accelerating e-mobility:
Europe’s vehicle fleets consist of 63 million cars, vans, buses and trucks, operated by private companies or public authorities. However, despite only representing 20% of the vehicle parc, they account for 40% of all kilometers travelled, and 50% of CO2 emissions from transport. Electrifying them would result in a win-win for climate as well as fleet owners.
“Electrification of car fleets can be a real game changer. It comes with tangible reductions of total costs of ownership and CO2 emissions. So it is a good deal both for fleet owners and society at large.” – said Kristian Ruby, Secretary General of Eurelectric.
