    Electrified Vans & Required Charging Infrastructure

    The European Union’s fleet-wide CO2 emission targets and the German Federal Government’s Climate Action Plan demand a considerable reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030. The specific CO2 targets for vans (N1) 2030 result in huge pressure relating to vehicle technology, and to user acceptance. Applying this technology in everyday operations with an available, appropriate and connected charging infrastructure, and with it the acceptance of alternative charging options, is a basic requirement for realizing the climate targets and the associated vehicle ramp-up. The expected rapid ramp-up requires the reliable and widescale provision of the necessary charging infrastructure. The recommendations for the right measures and setting the course are summarized in the VDA position "Electrified Vans and the required charging infrastructure”.
