Even a short glance at a situation in our own little backyard allows for the simple conclusion that we are way behind when it comes to electric cars.
In between reports on Polish concerns not planning production of electric cars but only focusing on “stimulating the development of electric car market and related markets” *, and signing Polish Programme for Electrification of Automotive Industry (March 2017) aiming at construction of infrastructure allowing for using these cars in Poland, there is basically nothing happening.
The number of electric cars registered in Poland does not exceed 1.5 thousand. We have 305 loading stations.
These results are far from impressive in view of the predictions for the future that more than 6.5 thousand such points should be available in the standard version in 2020 together with 300 additional stations for quick-loading. The costs of implementation for these assumptions are thought to be half a billion Polish zloty.
Somewhere as a side note some information appears on designs for a first Polish electric car i.e. a university major for electric and hybrid car designers (Katowice School of Technology).
With this respect projects in public city transport fare much better as last year representatives of the Solaris company, enterprises, and higher schools founded a cluster aiming at development of electro-mobility, and in June this year the “Polish E-bus” project has been signed aiming at creation of a prototype of Polish bus with electric drive.
It seems that in the nearest future, contrary to Norwegians stuck in traffic jams of electric cars, we will waste our precious time only in electric busses.
