Three in four Poles would consider buying e-car
Research shows that 73 percent of Polish drivers say they would consider buying an electric car.
A price of PLN 60,000 (EUR 14,000), a 150-kilometre range and seats for at least four people is what the average Polish driver ideally expects from a Poland-manufactured electric car, according to a recent survey by Kantor TNS, commissioned by ElectroMobility Poland.
The study also shows that an extensive service network is an important factor when opting for an electric car in Poland.
In September, ElectroMobility Poland announced it had chosen several promising designs for the first Polish-made electric car.
The Polish government is also involved in the project, as it aims to have one million electric cars on the country’s roads by 2025.
The first prototypes of the Polish electric car are to be ready next year with tax and other incentives offered for those who buy an electric vehicle, as well as subsidies of up to 70 percent of production costs for companies willing to produce them.
"We are really in front of a mega-trend and we need to understand ... that it is necessary to analyse how to support this industry... I am not so nervous. Of course I would like to see some results soon and I believe there will be," said Thomas Hajek, the president of the FSE electric car factory in Bielsko-Biala, southern Poland, which presented its own prototype of a passenger electric car, based on a Fiat 500 platform, in March.
