Devices for charging of electric vehicles should be multi charging

Price remains the main argument for people who would like to buy electric cars. It is price and system development of multi charging devices to recharge these vehicles. And all of these additional measures, like free parking and permissions for use "bus lanes" by environmentally-friendly vehicles – are the less incentive for the diffusion of environmentally friendly transport. So, it is opinion of the president of ZDK (Federation of German automakers) Jurgen Karpinski. By speaking at a press conference at the Frankfurt Exhibition «Avtomechanika-2014", he said: "I have on the table a project of the German legislation on electric transport (EmoG) from the German Federal Ministry of Transport. It is designed to stimulate the diffusion of environmentally friendly vehicles by the permission to use bus lanes for electric vehicles, to create special parking spaces, arrange free parking for a specific list of electronic vehicles. Response of our society is well known. "Not on our bus lanes" - the big cities will object, of course. "Not in our multi-storey car parks," - say the owners of commercial parking and users of public parking at the same time will oppose such "special" cases. Furthermore, it is clear that for private buyers the price remains the main cause of poor dissemination of electric vehicles. 

But the price as the argument has less weight for government agencies that play a crucial role as an example for others to follow, even though they do not recognize it. I am happy when I hear about the first electric cars in the car park of the Ministry "A" or the Ministry "B". Because it is an additional incentive for the dissemination of electric vehicles in the commercial sector, for the introduction of special tax breaks. The creation of a charging infrastructure is also indispensable in the promotion of environmentally friendly cars, which can be used for all types of electric vehicles. There should be no unilateral insistence on implementing only the European standard. Examples from other countries show that the so-called multi charging devices for charging engine that match Japanese standards, will be a weighty argument to reduce the additional costs for the construction of such items”.
