The autonomy of electric vehicles is gradually increasing, currently at around 400 km in theory, although this varies depending on driving style and speed. In any case, energy storage is undergoing great technological progress while its price is also falling, and this means considerable increases in real autonomy.
To reduce the level of doubt around available autonomy when driving an electric vehicle, there are now more than 70 public charging points in Euskadi that represent another factor in favour of using electric mobility. They are mostly slow-charge points, although some are also fast-charge that mean you can charge a battery in just over 20 minutes. The majority of journeys of most private car users are not over 30 kilometres, so the current autonomy of electric vehicles is more than sufficient, and charging points are also a psychological boost that gives users more confidence.
Night charging is the most common way to charge batteries. It is usually done at home, plugging the car in during the night so it is ready for use the next morning. It is also more and more common to find private charging points in communal garages, as the installations are simple and, although it is necessary to install cabling, no large facilities are required or complicated administrative procedures to get installation permits. It is simply a case of notifying the property administrators of the imminent installation of the equipment.
