Electromobility has made exciting progress in 2023, driven by technological innovations, improved infrastructure and government support measures. Here are some of the key trends that are emerging.
Fully electric vehicles are conquering the market
All-electric vehicles are gaining ground over hybrid models. Improved technologies, longer ranges and faster charging times make all-electric vehicles more attractive. Changed funding conditions are also contributing to this trend.
The demand for fast charging stations is growing as modern e-cars increasingly make them possible. By the end of 2023, a Germany-wide quick-charging network should guarantee users access to a quick-charging station within ten minutes.
New technologies and applications in e-mobility
Bidirectional applications are becoming increasingly popular. These enable e-vehicles not only to absorb energy, but also to serve as battery storage. Thanks to the ISO 15118-20 protocol, "Vehicle-to-Home" and "Vehicle-to-Grid" applications are possible, which means that e-vehicles can act as an energy source for houses and the entire power grid.
Smart charging is also gaining in importance. Here, vehicles are charged at times when energy prices are low in order to save costs and relieve the power grid.
Electrification in logistics and increasing selection of e-vehicles
Electricity is also increasingly used in logistics. A tender for a special truck charging network is planned for the third quarter of 2023. In addition, the selection of fully electric vehicles of different brands and types is increasing. Chinese manufacturers could fill the gap in cheap small and compact cars, which stimulates competition but also poses a challenge for European suppliers.
Overall, it can be seen that electromobility will continue to make rapid progress in 2023. Of course, this also raises new challenges and questions that need to be mastered in order to ensure sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility for everyone.
