Poland has around 6,000 electric passenger cars while the number of traditional vehicles exceeds 17 million, according to an expert of the Samar institute monitoring the car market.

"Electric cars account now for less than one per mille of the total number of passenger vehicles in Poland,' Michal Hadys said during a meeting devoted to e-mobility. He added the data was confirmed by the conclusions from a report by the European Automotive Industry Association.

According to this report, sales of e-cars in countries, where GDP per capita GDP does not exceed EUR 18,000, are close to zero. Hadys reminded that GDP per capita in Poland has just exceeded EUR 13,000.

Sixty percent of e-cars in Poland are fully electric (Battery Electric Vehicles, or BEVs), while the remaining 40 percent vehicles are hybrid (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles, or PHEVs).

Poland currently has around 700 charging stations.
