as Always, the success of electric mobility will be sung. And with good reason: The approval of the Stromer numbers are increasing steadily. Not least, because the car manufacturers are forced by the exhaust gas regulations of the EU, to press the electric vehicles in the market. But the Wind of the E-mobility front is spinning at the Moment: Only 59 percent of electric vehicle drivers would recommend their car, 13 per cent would even advise against explicitly to buy this model. Over a year ago, 77 percent, were full of praise and only six percent negative.

The so-called Early adopters expect that the children are solved diseases in the area of infrastructure and vehicles in the meantime. The reality looks different: The Performance of the vehicles can not keep up with the expectations step,“ said Dr. Axel Sprenger, managing Director of business consulting, USCALE, which has carried out the investigation. press-inform / USCALE USCALE study for electric mobility by 2020
Where the problem might be? The drivers are, especially with the features that make a battery car, dissatisfied. So, it’s things like recuperation, Eco Mode, Navigation, display and control concepts, as well as the Association of the car with an App and everything that goes with it, is lagging behind, especially the German manufacturers.
German manufacturers are in a bad way
Sprenger observes virtues: “The German points in the classical Engineering, such as the insulation of interior noises. Here Tesla comes only with difficulty to the level of a Renault Zoe. Unfortunately, the prejudices are confirmed to digital services: The advantage of Tesla is still great.“ All of the build thickness of the electric SUV, Mini, however, are: the City-Stromer in the first Test, FOCUS Online/Wochit All the build thickness of the electric SUV, Mini, however, are: the City-Stromer in the first Test

On the question, which plugs the problems usually occurred, documented the type 2 plug (48 percent) prior to the CCS plug (35 percent) ranks the two inglorious top. This is not surprising, since these connectors are in this country are most widespread. However, it must be observed in this result that the problems can occur more often if you have to repeatedly load the AC (alternating current), than when using a DC-plug (fast charging with direct current).

When Loading, it was observed that the majority of motorists filled their vehicles at home, but public Charging is becoming increasingly important – for example, 23 percent to refuel often on the road to the highway and 61 percent at least sometimes. If the Download didn’t work, changed to a different load column (48 percent) or turned to the Hotline. But also because the satisfaction rate is not overly good. As the cause of the problem, most electric vehicle drivers to give the most technical problems, or defects columns to load. Thus, it seems clear that there is still a lack of the infrastructure and its attributes.
