Hungarians are using more and more electric cars

While the number of new car sales in Europe fell dramatically in 2020 as a result of the coronavirus epidemic, the electric car market has been growing dynamically and this trend is expected to continue this year. By the end of 2020, the number of purely electric cars in Hungary exceeded 12,000 and a half thousand, and by the end of January it had already reached 13,000. Thanks to state subsidies, a spectacularly expanding model range of car manufacturers, and evolving infrastructure and technology, sales of new, purely electric cars are expected to increase dynamically this year as well.

Since 2017, the E.ON Hungária Group has been offering E-fleet services to businesses and local governments in a monthly fee structure, which, in addition to being a predictable cost, is a convenient and flexible solution, as it it includes all costs through favorable casco and compulsory liability insurance, saving customers a lot of time and energy. In addition, in the case of businesses, the VAT content can be reclaimed up to 100%.

There are already 19 types of purely electric cars to choose from in the energy company’s fleet, from small cars designed for urban transport to commercial vehicles. The energy company now offers one of the most modern and innovative electric cars, the Volkswagen ID.3. With its high performance, form-breaking design and range of up to 426 km, ID.3 has taken the experience of electric driving to a new level.

The cars in E.ON’s E-fleet have covered almost 3 million kilometers in recent years, reducing the amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the air by 273 tonnes.

“Electric driving is an experience in itself. A sense of life that includes the joy of a decision made responsibly, with tomorrow in mind, the knowledge that here and now, we are already on the path to the future. Daily quiet and exhaust-free driving, all that e-driving has brought us. But why not include the same heightened feeling that has excited audiences since the advent of the first cars: the opportunity to choose between new models? The road to a green, sustainable future is clearly visible to us, the only thing our E.ON E-fleet partners have to do is decide which electric car to roll through.

– said Zsolt Jamniczky, Member of the Board of E.ON Hungária Group.

In January, E.ON took another huge step to ensure a sustainable future, with e-motorists now able to charge their vehicles with green electricity on its public e-chargers. The customers of the existing and new e-fleet will be given a 15 percent discount from the current charging tariff by the energy company for a year.

Even in the year 2020, the 100 percent Hungarian-owned Mercarius Flottakezelő Kft. Increased the number of employees from 80 to 120, and from 5,000 to 9,000 the number of cars it manages. The company can look back on a successful partnership with E.ON, which will open another chapter with its fleet expansion.

“I am delighted to be part of this cooperation, as we all have a common goal to create a more livable, cleaner, greener future. As a fleet manager and a committed supporter of sustainable transport, we can do the most for this noble cause by providing e-mobility.

– said László Rónai-Horst, managing director of Mercarius Fleet Management Ltd.

Porsche Hungaria has been distributing Volkswagen vehicles in Hungary since 1990 and the company is also a leader in the import of electric cars in Hungary.

We are proud to be an active participant in this cooperation as an importer. Our company has always played a pioneering role in the Hungarian car market and we also strive for this role in e-mobility. In 2020, the largest number of Volkswagen electric cars were placed on the domestic market, 547 cars in number. ”

– said Balázs Németh, Managing Director of Porsche Hungaria Kft.

E.ON customers can use the company’s discounted e-chargers at more than 200 charging points across the country, which can be searched with the drivE.ON application, conveniently pay for charging in the application and even send a message to another car using the charged chargers via the chat function, how long it will be at that charging point. And with turnkey e-chargers for condominium, individual billing and stable service, charging electric cars can become a part of everyday life, whether at home or at work.
