One of the most influential people in the electric automotive world, he has launched an important and disconcerting proclamation regarding electric cars.
The automotive world is changing in appearance in every single part of the world. The various automotive houses are trying to revolutionize their plans, and adapt to the stringent regulations that the various governments are placing.
In fact, from 2035, mobility will be exclusively electric, according to what is learned from the international pages and from the decisions taken by the European Commission.
One of the houses that has always decided to focus on electrics, also following the dieselgate, is definitely Volkswagen. Volkswagen has been at the center of the dieselgate, and since then, it has decided to make the identification of an electric car strategy as its bulwark, and as the guiding star of its existence.
Put simply, Volkswagen wants to be the champion of sustainable mobility and offer a wide range of 100% electric cars.
We all know how Volkswagen markets their cars in every single corner of the world. It does not simply market them in Europe, but also in other countries of the world and therefore its decision must be carefully taken into consideration.
Clearly when the CEOs speak, we must be very careful, since we can glimpse future and prospective actions of the Automotive house.
A statement made a few days ago by the CEO, however, left many people speechless.
Pushing and wanting sustainable mobility, in fact, is not simply something that can be defined with the purchase of a car. We must not simply incentivize the purchase of electric cars, to push sustainable mobility. When people and tourists come to Italy, in fact, they should be welcomed by an integrated and enveloping system on sustainable mobility.
In these words, the concepts that have been declared by the head of Volkswagen, who openly criticizes the various Italian charging networks.
Indeed, there can be no development of sustainable mobility if the charging networks are not adequately developed. The real revolution of sustainable mobility also goes hand in hand with a way of doing mobility, in a slower way.
Currently, electric batteries are lithium-ion, and require significant charging times of at least 30 minutes.
We can therefore well contemplate the melancholy expressed by the CEO, who would like much more presence of electric columns. All tourists, in fact, as soon as they arrive in Italy, find themselves on the Brenner Pass, one of the best-supplied and best-managed motorways in this respect.
One of the most famous charging networks is Ionity, which allows you to charge the car very quickly. There are several fast charging stations on the Brenner Pass, but they are clearly not enough for the potential arrival of foreigners.
If we think of the huge number of German tourists who come to Italy, and who potentially need to recharge their car, we immediately understand how the difficulties are considerable and tangible.
Obviously, filling up with gasoline has a very fast time, but to recharge electricity we must have a much longer time, in addition to being a scarcity of places.
Ionity's plans have been downsized, according to many people, from the initial plans. It was supposed to be a real revolution with a very high number of electric charging stations, but currently large numbers are still in hiding.
The point is that fast charging in Italy is really rare.
Thus, sadly, car manufacturers are witnessing a slow development of charging networks, which do not keep up with the development and marketing of electric cars.
This stance by the CEO of Volkswagen is really strong and important, and aims to shake up the world of sustainable mobility considerably.
Electric cars are the future of sustainable mobility in many years, but they can also be an immediate future if the electric charging network is implemented.
Currently, however, going around the Italian motorways, one sees very few fast charging points, and therefore this only increases Italy's distance and gap towards future generations.
While waiting for the fast electric charging stations, we must also contemplate how the Automotive industry is preparing for an epochal revolution in the change of electric batteries.
In fact, in 2025, the first solid-state batteries will arrive, which will allow for more immediate time management by motorists, who will be able to charge electric batteries very quickly.
