The fleet of fully electric passenger cars (BEV) consisted of 58,050 units, representing a 59% year-over-year increase. Meanwhile, the fleet of fully electric delivery and heavy-duty vehicles increased to 6,460 units by the end of April 2024, marking a 70% year-over-year growth .

Prospects for Electric Vehicle Growth in Poland

The Ministry of Climate and Environment has updated its forecast regarding the growth of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles on Polish roads. It is estimated that in 2024, there will be a total of 127.9 thousand such vehicles, reaching 1 million by 2029, and by 2030, the number of plug-in electric vehicles will exceed 1.5 million.

With this, the need for parallel development of electric vehicle charging infrastructure arises. It is a good time to consider electric mobility in the context of investing in your own charging station.

WHY INVEST IN YOUR OWN CHARGING STATION:

Long-term investment ensuring stable growth in a growing market: Electric vehicle charging stations generate additional revenue from the fees charged for using electricity. Moreover, it is a virtually maintenance-free source of income.

Reduction of operational costs and increased operational efficiency: Developing your own fleet of electric vehicles is beneficial due to lower operational costs compared to combustion vehicles. Additionally, new depreciation rates for electric vehicles in the fleet will apply from 2026.

Standing out from the competition and attracting new customers: Having a charging station can increase the attractiveness of a location, especially for people with electric vehicles. This is particularly important in the context of the growing popularity of electrifying corporate fleets and planning future business trips.

Supporting sustainable development: Investing in charging stations enables a company to transition to a more sustainable mode of transport, helping to reduce its carbon footprint. It is an investment that aligns with the ESG trend.

Fulfilling legal obligations: According to the electromobility law, large enterprises are required to provide an adequate number of charging points at existing and new non-residential buildings by January 1, 2025.
