“However, it is worth noting that our study also shows that for most Poles to actually consider buying an electric car, the average cost of such a car should be reduced by about 23%. This is a value lower by 3 percentage points compared to last year and at the same time an important signal for producers and government administration. It is crucial to continue activities to reduce the prices of electric cars to make them more accessible to a wider audience,” Aleksander Rajch, member of the PSNM management board, told the daily.

Price expectations

Respondents do not believe that the prices of electric vehicles should be equal to the prices of combustion cars. “Poles are ready to pay more provided that zero-emission vehicles meet their expectations,” the text emphasizes. The budget for purchasing a new electric car, which 46% have. surveyed, is at least 100 thousand. PLN, and 17 percent is able to pay 150 thousand PLN and more.

“PB” described customers' expectations regarding electric cars available on the market.

“The Fiat 500e should cost PLN 96.2 thousand to arouse their real interest. They set the upper limit of the acceptable price at PLN 116.9 thousand, while its catalog prices start from PLN 130.9 thousand. BMW i5 starts with a price list from PLN 345,000, while the price arousing interest was set at PLN 206,200-237,500. The VW ID.7 is also very expensive , meanwhile the car costs from PLN 276.7 thousand,” we read.
