ROME While in Europe, sales of electric cars in June (+66%) exceeded diesel ones for the first time, Italy still remains in last place in the diffusion of cars “with plug” (Ecv), even if the share continues to rise slowly and reaches 9.8%, with electric cars (Bev) at 4.4% and hybrids (Phev) at 5.4%.

The Unrae (the association of foreign manufacturers) explains it, which highlights the gap with other countries: in Germany the beings are 18.9% and the phevs to 5.7% (down from January after the exclusion from incentives), in France beer at 17.5% and phevs to 9.4%, in the United Kingdom beer at 17.9% and PHEVs to 7.2%, in Spain BE 5.4%.

Unrae expresses its appreciation “for the approval, by the European Parliament, of the proposed AFIR regulation for the construction of infrastructure for alternative fuels, now being examined by the European Council. Italy will have to ensure the installation, on motorways and national roads, of groups of fast electric recharging stations at least every 60 km in each direction of travel, and hydrogen refueling stations at a maximum distance of 200 km from each other. “These are finally binding objectives that are congruous with the potential and needs of our Country”, says the general manager Andrea Cardinali. “On the other hand, there is concern about the Mase tender for extra-urban charging infrastructure which, unlike the one for urban centres, has gone almost deserted, with only 6 projects presented and none eligible”.
