Ireland aims to boost THE Government is to unveil a package of special incentives to promote electric car sales after less than 700 were sold in Ireland in five years.
The package is expected to include enhanced levies to further lower electric car costs as well as operating rewards including free street parking while charging as well as priority lane use. Coupled with efforts by major manufacturers including Renault, Nissan, Toyota, Mitsubishi and BMW to extend 'e car' range, the new package aims to ensure that one in ten new cars sold by 2022 in Ireland will be electric powered. Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney, an e car ESB brand ambassador, said the Government was determined to exploit "the huge potential of the sector." "The technology is starting louis vuitton alma bb review to deliver that (better range). But we only have 600 or 700 electric cars in the country and I louis vuitton purses how to tell if real think that is going to dramatically change over the next couple of years," he said. Ireland ranked as the worst of 17 EU member states in 2013 for the take up of e cars. A total of just 58 electric (not including hybrid) cars were louis vuitton neverfull outlet sold in Ireland last year compared to 23,000 in the Netherlands. Almost 75,000 petrol and diesel fuelled cars were sold in Ireland last year. Renault, which boasts the greatest range of e cars, said it still expected more than 200,000 electric and hybrid cars on Irish roads by 2022. Mr Coveney said the Government's new strategy will be to promote e cars via special urban hubs. This will include a dramatically increased number of e car charging points. "You will see some very big initiatives over the next couple of months to promote electric transport and I think that is good in terms of emissions but also good in other ways mainly in terms of the cost of motoring," he said.
The ESB calculate that an Irish motorist driving 15,000km per annum will have average electricity re charging costs of 120 roughly 15pc of the comparable petrol cost. Mr Coveney has vowed to "practice what I preach" and, after using a Nissan Leaf for several months, is now using a hybrid powered Mitsubishi louis vuitton bags galliera Outlander.
