will it slow down sales of electric vehicles?

As the price of electricity rises sharply, could this really have an impact on sales of electric cars?

For the past few months, the situation has been more than difficult for all French people. And for good reason, the price of fuel has increased very sharply, exceeding the two euro mark, but not only. Toll prices also skyrocketed, as did that of new cars and even second hand. Not to mention electricity, which also experienced a very strong increase, like that of all consumer products in general. A real disaster for the economy and for everyone, when most people now have to tighten their belts more than ever to be able to continue to live normally. And this should not go on improving, while electricity could still blaze over the next few months, and especially during the winter.

An impact on sales?

But will this sharp increase in the bill have an impact on the sale of electric vehicles? Because for years, the government has wanted to push motorists to switch to zero-emissions, especially since the European Commission will ban the sale of thermal models from 2035. Well, according to Clément Molizon, general delegate of the Association national for the development of electric mobility (Avere-France) relayed by the Echos Judiciaires, not necessarily. Indeed, he emphasizes that the French will be protected by the tariff shield. He goes on to say that ” 80% of top-ups are done at home and at work […] Even if we would have an increase in the price of electricity, there is a margin that is quite significant. At home, we are about two euros per 100 km, when in thermal we are between 12 and 16 euros depending on the performance of the cars« .

A price increase

Nevertheless, if the French should therefore not necessarily suffer too much from the rise in electricity prices, the operators of charging stations should however adapt their prices accordingly. This is particularly the case ofI attachwho announced a increase in the price of kWh from 15 to 20% from the beginning of September, due to “ of rising electricity prices across Europe“. For its part, Ionity has no plans to change its prices, as has Izivia, a subsidiary of EDF dedicated to charging stations.
