difficult comparison – In Italy, few electric cars are sold. The data tells us that, in The first nine months of 2022 The EV have undergone a 23.6% decrease Compared to the same period last year (36,090 registrations versus 47,241, with market share dropping from 4 to 3.6%). This is a real anti-trend phenomenon compared to what we can see in it Europewith battery-powered vehicle registration a plus 26% Of the registered from January to September this year. If we get rid of some other data, we can see that our country was recorded in the first nine months of the year 36,090 electric cars As against 272.473 in Germany, 175.614 in the United Kingdom and 140,965 in France.
Because? – But Which Maybe Reasons? Why not share the electric car in Italy?
incentives First of all, there is a problem incentives. From 2019 to 2021, those who want to buy an electric car can take advantage of an incentive of 4 to 6000 euros with scrap. In 2022, the incentive will be only 3,000 euros if we use scrap or 1,500 euros if you don’t have an old car. In addition, it should be borne in mind that in Italy, for incentives, a car can cost no more than 35,000 euros. a rather low threshold If we think about the average electric cars, which are notorious for being very expensive, which cuts most of them. Former Minister Giorgetti’s decree attempted to remedy this impediment by allowing those who have I see income less than €30,000 To be able to take advantage of an incentive of up to 7,500 euros in case of scrapping. The contribution drops to 6000 euros if you do not want to take advantage of scrapping. It is a pity that those who have an income of this level who will not spend almost 35-40 thousand euros to buy an electric car will not be able to use it, most likely, as a single family car.
comp – Then there’s a problem comp Those practicing long-term leasing of their corporate fleets: Since 2021, companies have been excluded from the new incentives. A regulatory “correction” has been introduced from October 2022 that also allows legal entities carrying out commercial car rental activities, other than car sharing, to receive up to a maximum of €2,500 with scrap (1,500 € without) for the purchase of a new car. 0-20 g/km CO2 and at a list price equal to or less than €35,000 excluding VAT. Contribution that drops to €2,000 with scrapping (€1,000 without scraping) for the purchase of new cars with emissions in the range of 21-60 g/km CO2 and at a list price equal to or less than €45,000 excluding VAT.
EU funds – Moreover, we can also note that in Italy, unlike what has been done by other European countries, Next generation EU funds (referred to as PNRR, National Recovery and Resilience Plan) to develop incentive plans.
lack of infrastructure – Icing on the cake lack of infrastructure Appropriate, from the difficulty of installing charging points in residential units to the relatively slow development of the public charging network. If we combine all this with an economic crisis aggravated by the high level of inflation, which affects the purchasing power of households, the picture is complete.
