League Table of Electric Charging Networks in Europe

The German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) presents a league table of electric charging networks in Europe. The extent of the charging infrastructure was evaluated in 31 European states, showing how many publicly accessible charging points each country has in relation to its total passenger car fleet (gasoline, diesel, electric vehicles and others).

The A Score

The A score indicates the attractiveness of the charging network in each country. The evaluation shows how many publicly accessible charging points each country has in relation to the total passenger car fleet (gasoline, diesel, electric vehicles and others). The more public charging points there are, the more attractive it is for consumers to switch to electric drive.
