The Polish Alternative Fuels Association points out that an increase of over 200 percent year to year, but against the background of Europe Poland falls pale.

Further investments in infrastructure and legislative changes are needed to accelerate the development of the charger network.

Experts from PSPA point out that at the end of December 2019, 8 637 electric passenger cars drove on Polish roads, 59% of which were fully electric vehicles (BEV) - 5 091, and the remaining part of the plug hybrid -in (PHEV, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles) - 3 546. The park of electric trucks and vans in the analyzed period increased to 519 units, while the number of electric buses to 224 units. The fleet of electric mopeds also continues to grow and motorcycles, which at the end of December reached the level of 6 239 units

As the number of vehicles increases, the public charging infrastructure is developing. At the end of December 2019, 1 011 electric vehicle charging stations operated in Poland (1 815 points). 28% of them were fast DC charging stations, and 72% slow AC chargers with 22 kW or less. There are less than three passenger cars per one public charging point in Poland. At the end of 2018, there were over 300 stations in Poland. We are far away from European electromobility leaders. For example, in London alone over 1,500 publicly available charging points have been installed so far, almost as many as in Poland. In Germany, on the other hand, their number still exceeded 20,000 in 2019.
