European plug-in car adoption

The European Union and several national, provincial, and local governments in Europe actively support the adoption of plug-in electric vehicles. A number of policies have been put in place to provide direct financial assistance to consumers and manufacturers, as well as non-monetary incentives, subsidies for charging infrastructure deployment, and long-term regulations with specific targets. In particular, the EU regulation that established mandatory targets for average fleet CO2 emissions for new cars has been effective in recent years in contributing to the successful adoption of plug-in cars.
