Mechelen underlines pioneering role in charging infrastructure
The rise of electric vehicles is accelerating spectacularly. The most recent forecasts point to an increase in the number of electric cars in Belgium to 1.5 to 2 million by 2030. The Flemish Climate Plan that was recently approved, foresees that all newly purchased cars must be electric from 2029. The gradual electrification of the vehicle fleet is essential to achieve the carbon reduction objectives by 2030. According to figures compiled by BloombergNEF, by 2026/2027 the average purchase price of an electric car will be at the same level or even lower than that of its fossil counterpart. Looking at the total cost of ownership, an electric car will be cheaper from 2025 onwards. But this also implies an increasing need for charging stations.
